Sculpture made entirely out of welding wire


Tomás Libertiny made this sculpture entirely out of solder, using a stationary welder setup and a welding turntable. It was at the Design/Miami Craft Punk exhibit at Milan design week, hence the Fendi welding suit. Via Cool Hunting.

    1. well, it’s not welding /rod/ that comes from what appears to be a MIG welder, so what /do/ you call it? They call it solder in the Cool Hunting post, but I wasn’t convinced that’s completely accurate.

  1. it’s wire or “wire electrode”

    MIG stands for microwire inert gas, there is a gas sheield

    TIG is similar except for…wait for it…tungsten inert gas

    high five!
