Mixed media (anvil and pink rhinestones)
0.6 x 0.5 x 0.25 m
Since becoming part of the blacksmithing community I have joined a number of online forums that are focused on the craft. I have often noticed that people are very opinionated and to explore this I decided to turn my anvil in to a sculpture by covering it in over 10,000 pink gem stones and changing the angle at which it is stood. I then posted this image on the forums. The responses were amazingly amusing and highly negative, not many people understood it as a sculpture , mainly just as sacrilege against an anvil.
