Gilroy artist Richard Starks, created this sculpture from a series of sketches. It is one of a kind and is handcrafted entirely by the artist. The pieces of Cor-Ten steel are cut, bent, and fitted together then 100% TIG welded. Cor-Ten steel is known for its unique rusting characteristics, which will change over time, depending upon the environment it is subjected to.
Richards' more than 30 years of teaching metalworking to highschool students has given him a lot of inspiration. So many shapes, so little time to build them all! This sculpture is available for purchase for $18,000.
