Odins raven transformation piece from a falling feather breaking of into silhouette birds and finally the tribal Odins raven appears. The patina into silver colour change is used to symbolise this transformation.
This piece measures 45” x 19” and comes with 1” aluminum standoff to give the piece depth on the wall.
A little bit about my process for creating.
My ideas generally center around, nature and Celtic, Norse and other ancient mythology.
I use a combination of hand plasma and CNC to cut the metal. All images I trace or hand draw initially. This gives the final pieces a more authentic feel as the cut is not perfectly symmetrical. Then the image is scanned onto the computer. It is fixed up to be made readable for the plasma CNC to cut. Keeping with the natural look, I grind and texture the piece raw silver or I spray a patina solution made from vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and salt. This creates it own random colours on the steel.
So while of the similar design, this allows your order to be a unique one off a kind piece. Lastly, its clear coated to protect the finish.
Your own design in mind? No problem.
The piece can be sized to suit your specific needs.

Helping reduce the amount of recycling of old material. With a little bit of effort you can do many things to give a new lease of life to old materials. Much of the old grey bran wood I use is from a 1912 Calgary hotel that was taken down. The metal for many of my pieces is scrap metal off cuts sourced from weld shops in the surrounding area.
I have a wide range of products as well as my custom projects that you can check for yourself on my website mishmashmetal.com or on my Instagram page ; http://www.instagram.com/mishmashmetal/
