Spring Dog

Made by Alan M

I made a Dachshund but I think he has some Springier in him. I did not even think about it but this dog is in Toy Story. None the less, I wanted to see if I could make a dog in this style. I think he works. I did pick up two more car springs and I am not sure of what I will make of them. I do live on a small lake………………….maybe a fish??????

  1. Thanks!!!!! Sorry, not much talent here. I love to look at metal art on Pinterest. Then I think of what I have and try to make my version. I am glad that you like it. So often I make things and then I can not sell it. I had a dog like this where all the parts just slid into slots. I thought it was cool but no one would buy it.

  2. Thanks!!!! I am glad that you like the dog. Since the spring is sort of long I just had to make a Dachshund. I like it when you look at a piece of art and you know what it is right away. ???????

    • No, it is all metal. The spring is off a car. They are under pressure and a little dangerous to get off the strut if you do not have the tools. I am glad that you like him. Jonni wanted me to post it even though it is not paper Mache.

    • Thanks!!!!! The truth is, I am not very artistic. I get inspired by other peoples work on Pinterest. I, like Jonni, use pictures of real animals so that I can make my parts proportionately.

  3. I love these somewhat abstract sculptures. You know immediately what it is but you have to keep looking to take in the materials used and all the curves. Great job!

    • Thanks!!!! ???? I like it when you know what you are looking at, a dog. Some people take common objects to make art. Those are fun to because you can look ate and guess what all the parts are; a fork, a spoon, a wrench, a vegetable can or whatever they could find. This was just a car spring and I have a plasma cutter to make all the rest of the parts.
