Phase One, Step One

To build the armature of the pheonix wing I am bending and welding a structure out of steel rods.  I have drawn out a plan for the wing on paper that I am using as a guide for the initial phases of construction.

You can see a small maquette of the wing beneath the large steel form.  Feathers have already been added to the maquette, and when I begin to bend and shape the feathers for the final sculpture, I will be referring back to this guide, as well as the many schematics and drawings I’ve made.
