ernestine and stereo dog

Introducing Ernestine, another one of my full size assemblage robot (i've really do enjoy fabricating the larger pieces). This metal maiden is currently on display down at our local Community Center along with a collection of pieces from the artist guild I belong to. Top down - Aluminum ground wire, antique ceiling light fixture, aluminum water carafe, antique hot/cold faucet knobs, large coffee grounds basket , vintage coffee urn (Ernestine...get it?), Harley Davidson fender supports, industrial light reflector, super long candle stick holders, go kart hubs. That's a turn buckle between her legs...I needed to anchored her to a 24" round steel plate to ensure that the little ones wouldn't topple love to play with the sculptures. Stands 5' tall
