Mark and Kirby just finished this piece, a six-foot-something tall gong repurposed from all sorts of metal. Here’s how it’s done.
1941 oxygen canister
farm implement disc
leftover steel gas line
Apply welding equipment. Mix in vast amounts of effort, time, and creativity. Add sweat.
Place in garden. Hit gong with cannonball as desired.
We’re grateful that our friends (and amazing artists) Steve and Debra Bures will be offering the piece for sale starting this weekend as they celebrate Elements Gallery‘s 25th year anniversary. You’ll want to visit the charming town of Peninsula as well as their enticing gallery. While you’re there, give the gong a hearty cannon ball thwack!
Here’s the gong in place, in front of their gallery.
