Owl Automaton "Luna Hunter"
LUNA HUNTER is a 41 inch wingspan automaton owl that moves the wings and head as in taking flight. The legs, wings, feathers, and tree leaves were created from butterknives, spoons, forks, and stainless steel serving dishes. The body was created from a salvaged gas generator muffler, and the inner framework from reclaimed metal lawn furniture pieces. The tree trunk and branches were created from old patina water pipes, and salvaged hardware pieces. The tree textures were created carefully with welding wire, and the base is created from a salvaged automotive brake rotor. A truly beautiful thing is that reclaiming metal with each creation contributes to keeping these beautiful real-life creatures in a clean and happy forest!
