Cut steel base, wood, wire legs, 2006, about 2" high

I made a lot of insects out of sand-rounded pieces of wood found on the beach in Small Point, Maine. Some of them were used in my Museum Cases installation, others were mounted, as this one is, on a steel base. I am not a very good welder, but I love it because welding melts metal. That's an amazing power to hold in your hands.
