THe Old Base

A local Vancouver sculptor, Louise Weir, needed a different base for her sculpture. You can see the original base here.

To this end, I fabricated a tall, robust, and varied-angle support post.

AN ANGLED hole in the sculpture

The head of the sculpture had a hole within it, and that hole was at an angle. Therefore, I had to bend the post so that it supported the sculpture.


I cut the base plate with a slow-speed, steel-cutting hand circular saw. I used an acetylene and oxygen torch to control and pinpoint the heat on the steel as I formed the post.

Final Results

With its new base, this sculpture was ready for its new owner.
