The Phoenix

I had been wanting to get into 3D art for a long time and finally it brewed. I have been involved in an exhibition and the idea of reclaiming and recycling items reminded me of twisting drinks cans into shapes when I was a kid. I also worked as an engineer with my dad so metal is in the blood (shards in the bloodstream!). So I started collecting discarded cans in the street. After hours of cutting them into ‘feathers’ and twisting metal wire for the bones I came up with the Phoenix (part 1 probably). Would be great to hear opinions and comments. I’ve just bought a vapor mask to start another piece, the glue tripped me out making this one!
