Abstract walking cat / flower pot holder. I got to do it to memorialize Wendy our next door neighbor’s cat who passed suddenly this weekend. Hank and Owen were funny checking her out.

Wichita Collegiate School

The lead photo on this article is my Steampunk xylobone fish sculpture. This makes me happy to know it's being loved by kids and adults alike!

Congratulations Wichita Collegiate School in Wichita, KS!

“The child’s imagination is invoked by nature’s wonder, by connections to literature, Mother Goose elements inspired by annual traditions, and many musical elements. … Through active play and quiet moments the children will reap the benefits of time spent in nature thus becoming healthy individuals and caring stewards of the earth.”

I've been busy welding sheet metal to purge rust from the Impala. Today was a major milestone with 3 generations on hand to lift the body off the car frame. Next week we media blast it here onsite down to bare metal and prime it.

We did a good job tearing down the front end and pulling the drivetrain out.

Basic structure is complete. the tail fin cranks with the handle. The steampunk gears actually do move. More skin metal, color, eyes etc detail coming. Need to find the vertical center of gravity and create the structure that will hold it up like it's jumping out of the stream. (Finally, the belly will be accessible about 3' up to reach by the kids to safely play the the Xylophone)

here's an early stage pic of the foundation of a large mouth bass named STEAMpunk Xylobone. At 3' it's the largest fish I ever caught. I will have real xylophone chimes mounted to the belly for little kids to play music.

I'm loving this blue dye oxide. This is a pipe chime that pivots on these bolts and will support the "XyloBone Steampunk Fish" sculpture.

All three played together. Different but the same in harmony.

Take a listen. Recycled metals made into a big chime that will be the pedestal for the Xylobone Fish. Goes with the mushrooms off to KS in August.

3 of these cool sounding mushroom drums are going into a school playground this Fall
