Kennedy Elk Sculpture

This elk sculpture was conceived by David Kennedy and we crafted it with his assistance. Together we transformed a 12″ tall cardboard model into a 1,500 lb. sculpture. From David’s model we produced a digital model then laser-cut plates of steel to build the larger-than-life size elk. The body is 3/4″ thick steel plate and stands over 8 feet tall. The steel flanks are built up from plasma-cut 1/4″ plate.

David tells his story in this beautifully made video about this project.

The surface was carefully conditioned to allow the steel to rust thoroughly and evenly. Over the next year a heavy red-brown patina will form in the clean air of Central Oregon.
