This is a steel sculpture made by gas welding techniques, also with the help of tools such as a diacro bending machine and plasma cutter, and shaping with a hammer. It has a soft texture and is made to represnt a particular leaf, called a Dusty Miller leaf. It is about 4 feet stem to tip, a bit longer than a meter.
