I stared a new project tentatively called the Triceratops machine
I base the idea on the original model made some 68 million year ago.
This is a skeleton in the Los Angeles Natural History Museum.
Normally, when I make a sculpture, I kind of build everything all equal.
In otherwords I build all components all together until they are all completed at the same time.
This time I am going to change my approach and build the head first, up to about 90% and then start of the body and then the legs.
I drew out a design and cut it out of 1 mm plate.
Then I soldered the various components plates together
Then I changed my mind and I cut the spike off and put a 3 mm plate on top
Then I made a stainless steel central spike and some horn/spikes on top of the head.
I drew the eye out.
In any sculpture I have ever made, the eye is always the most difficult.
It can seriously fuck a piece up if it is wrong.
Next is making the eye
