Art Restoration

This is a piece called The Prodigy that was caught in Hurricane Ike in Galveston. The new owners asked me to restore it back to it's former glory. To repair it, I had to disassemble it and take everything down to bare metal, repair a weld, recreate the patina and make new juggling balls. This is the first time I've had to restore a sculpture to its former self and it was an interesting experiment recreating a piece from six years ago, but this baby turned out alright! The new owners are pleased and I'm pleased.
