Metal Frame for Wing Structure
Completed October 1, 2017
The finished wings were to be made out of plasterzote which is a high density foam. Plasterzote would have been good for carving into and is very light weight. The wings never got finished unfortunately as the show got canceled.

Design & Construction
I made a harness for each dancer to wear which the wings will attach on to.
I bent aluminum rods to shape for the structure of the wings.
The bent aluminium had a plate welded to the base which attached to 2 bolts on the back of the harness.
The plate on the harness which the bolts were welded to was riveted in between 2 layers of leather.
It was a very clean and secure finish.
