The lollipop series was inspired by vivid candy colors and a love for all things anime. This MIG welded steel is the first piece in the series and is named "@". The square in the center is a hefty solid block but when the whole sculpture is lifted and then set back down it does bounce a little. The metal is cool to the touch and is finely sprayed with three layers of Krylon UV-Resistant acrylic coats for a healthy archival protective sheen. The steel is colored with a combination of paste and oil dyes. The textures are derived from grinding, sanding or brush techniques.
