This organic abstract looks like a Monumental Jellyfish. I will be powder coating it soon.

"Rocking Horse People"
This abstract metal sculpture is more sculpture than gate.
This stainless steel snake made from recycled metal purchased from Mid-Carolina Recycling in Columbia, SC.
Making abstract sculpture is easier for me than animals or people, however all my sculptures must have feeling, whether or not they are representative or non-representative.
Notice the wolf (aluminum) and the Moon (copper) these commissioned sculptures are created with natural metal colors.
Natural finishes of metals capture nature better than paint and photo-realism. I used stainless steel and mild steel to create this sculpture.
To make this sculpture work, I had to let go of the exact reality and embrace the fluid feeling of its movments. You must go with the flow sometimes or you will freeze the feeling.
Sculpture has a very positive energy, it draws you in and appeals to your sense of touch. It transforms a space and creates a feeling that is unique to you and your life.
Some people buy art and take it home and place it on a empty wall; others commission artist to create a space that tells a story.
