Carbon Atom
This metal Sculpture is of a Carbon Atom. Carbon is the building block of nature, and is fundamental to life. The Atom consists of a Nucleus of 6 Protons and Neutrons, this is surrounded by two electron shells of 2 and 4 electrons respectively.

The sculpture is made from mild steel. The Protons, Neutrons and Electrons are made from 40mm metal balls. The Electron paths are made from metal rings. I used a sanding machine to polish and roughen the surface; the sculpture is finished in a clear gloss lacquer to protect the raw metal. The sculpture is about 400mm in diameter.
