THis is the top "hand piece"... Bee fans beeware. This one is looking for a MAJOR flower! The wood top grip to this cane is a techie sort of bee, robot I was thinking but quite realistic and would easily pass for a non bot! Done in a variety of golden and brown metallic shades accented with silver wings and what not. Fits very neatly into a hand. And he rides on a pillar of honey!
Made almost 100% from wood unless stated otherwise (I sometimes use tiny amounts of other things) I use paint and many finishes, often metallic, and make sure a lot of details shine through, often even the wood grain itself despite high tech themes. They maintain an often retro, sometimes even rustic look and feel to them, like an "olde worlde" toy or something (some more so than others ... I am told that surprisingly many do not even look like they are wood, but like metal or some manmade material... you can usually tell by the photos).
This top sculpture piece (the bee itself) of this creation is about 3 2/3" long by 1 1/4" wide by 1 1/2" high (remember, 2 1/2 centimeters to an inch). The rod is made of transparent acrylic plexi in a honey amber color about 1/2 inch in diameter; the cane's entire total length is about 37" tall. The bottom has a protective white plastic tip. Note that these are fashion accent canes of an artistic bent not for heavy, medical use (though I do make them quite sturdy!).
Made of Wood! Part of my "Retro Tech" line ... I build a lot of different things like ray guns, robots, rocket ships, flying saucers, other machines, telescopes and more in many different formats from full size prop replicas to miniatures, Christmas ornaments, jewelry, pendants, etc ... see my main site found through my profile which has many more photos and information. I do a lot of classic looks, but am expanding into more modern and a lot of steampunk, too!
