    Default The Welded Predator

    A very good friend of mine who has an extremely creative and artistic nature took up welding around three months ago. After learning through trial and error, starting with small simple pieces he has created a quiet astonishing piece of art, made even more astonishing when you discover it is built from old cutlery and small pieces of scrap metal. It took around seventy five hours of work and has been valued between £1200-£1500. The Predator stands almost eighteen inches tall and really has a dramatic presence.
    There are several smaller pieces, birds and roses.
    I was very pleased with the gift of a Kingfisher when John popped over to show me the Predator.

    Wow - your friend is very gifted! Whilst I wouldn't want the 'Predator' standing on my sideboard, I do admire the skill and artistry involved.

    Nice work. Must be using a TIG welder to make those.

    They are actually done with a MIG but he's planning getting a TIG for much finer, detailed work.

    My opinion Grant , The art is above the base , The base is a base and irelivent and should not compete
