This weather vane was commissioned by a couple who have two German
Shepherds and who have named their home "Shepherd's Watch".
I created a shepherd's
crook for the dogs to stand on, and the directionals are made
in the shape of dog bones. The addition of extra plates which
form the legs of the dogs, give added depth that would not appear
on a conventional silhouette. Further detailing of the muscles,dog
hair etc. were achieved by adding aluminum welds, grinding and
gouging of the aluminum plate.
