Origami Metal Sculpture by Bruce Keller

Permanent metal origami sculpture created from stainless steel... for sale for homes and offices -- indoors or outdoors -- in your tea garden -- next to your koi pond.

I've been an Origami paper folder for years... and have always wanted a more permanent form of Origami. Once I got into metal working for my robotics work, I started creating Metal Origami... after folding a paper model, I mark the edges of the Origami's structure and project it (with an Artograph opaque projector) onto the metal, plasma cut it out, and TIG weld it into the form.

Metal Origami Sculptures are custom created at time of order and can take a few weeks to be completed.
