Sea is for turtle

Here's a sea turtle I made out of copper ground wire, a capped/cone-shaped end of a plumbing pipe along with architectural copper as well as parts trimmed of from raising the urn project.

This was mainly chasing and repoussé rework a bit of piercing (sawing) forging.

Finally, the piece was Tig welded, finished with a cupric nitrate green patina and sealed with a microcrystalline wax.
