The Scorpion was the first jointed sculpture I made. Growing up in desert climates, I’ve noted that most animals have spines and have a unique look to them. I wanted to exaggerate that look while playing with the concept that the exoskeleton is like a suit of armor. This allowed me to incorporate some armor designs. The Scorpion is fully articulating. I enjoy mechanisms and wanted it to be more than just a solid sculpture. I wanted to be able to interact with it and do different poses with it. The scorpion incorporates hollow forming, fold forming 4 different hinges, piercing, clasps, and forming, along with several other advanced techniques.
The Scorpion is made out of copper and brass, and measures 7.5’’, 6’’, 2.5’’
