This method of welding is especially pleasing to modeling, since the weld is soft enough that after joining the parts one can continue to model the sculpture. The work process allows a spontaneous influence in the possibility of exploring the material, from heating, cutting or adding mass to the joints and thus making an additional contribution to the relief and drawing of the form. Each stronger deformation of the material opens a new field of understanding the problems of working in this material, as well as the possibility to reach some new aesthetic values. The sculpture "Eruptive Formations" is one of a series of works on the topic of LANDSCAPE, made by the method of forged black sheet metal and oxyacetylene welding. Eruptive Formations bear their name from the core content identifications of materials, the process of form formation and the associations that create form. The first association with the nucleus, as a hot mass, is the process of melting metal. Each landscape is formed by the meeting of certain physical force and thus indicates the inseparability of nature and physical structure, spirituality and practice. Dimensions 95cm deep x 75cm wide x 220cm high
