Welding Snake

Goofy Snake (April 2003)

I think the Goofy Snake was one of my first sculptures, if not the first.   I used Oxy-Acetylene and a very small tip (000 or 00) for the welds and a larger tip (1) to do the heating for the bending.  In order to get the head right I made a cardboard mockup so that I could plan out the angles.  I know snakes don't have top and bottom fangs, but this isn't a rattle snake, it's a goofy snake with googly eyes.
