At the end of the school year DSC decided to get rid of all its old tripods from the science area. Knowing I worked in metal they told my daughter and she duly brought them home. My initial reaction to a car load of tripods was “oh no” but as soon as I got them home I thought they could be an interesting ball. I decided on legs in rather than out for safety, and the first one I made a Gal steel ball to sit against the legs like a core. I mounted it on three legs to honor the tripod element and this is the result. It sort of suggests worlds within worlds or a half finished death star and I am happy with the piece.
