Excited to participate in this wonderful event. Please visit their website for more information. See you there!
This bull is made from over 800 washers. Each washer is formed with a hammer and a vice. Each washer measures 4 in diameter and the overall bull stands at over 5 foot tall and 8 foot long.
Next weekend is CenterFest in downtown Durham. Artist from all over the country will be displaying their work and this event will bring more than 25,000 visitors to the streets of Durham. Next Saturday and Sunday. More information can be found here: http://centerfest.durhamarts.org/
Stop by and say hi, I will be the guy with the 14’ giraffe!!!
Go Bulls! Durham Bulls Triple-A minor league baseball team that is. What a beautiful stadium and wonderful environment to catch a ballgame and hang out with your friends and family. I am honored that I will have my work displayed at the stadium for the 2015 season. Go Bulls!
Bamboo is very hard material and it is a good renewable resource. Here I have used my ShopBot computerized router to cut out multiple state shaped cutting boards. Using this type of machine makes reproduction of intricate cutting as simple as cutting a straight line on a table saw! Then using a laser engraver I took the logo from The Pit and burnt it into the top of the board. All of the boards are then sealed with a food friendly coating. I would love to have a rack off their ribs piled up on one of these boards right in front of me now!!
Next time you are downtown Durham, NC check out Bull City Burger and Brewery. Very excited to have my project displayed here. Having left over washers from the earlier pig, I decided to do a trophy mount of a bulls head. Using the same technique of a foam mold to build around, this bull head was easily welded up and mold extracted.
I really admire how BCBB is run using all of NC companies for their products. All of their meat and produce is from local farms and their burgers and beer are just outright delicious.
