A steel bed, with spikey pencil-post frame and lizards for a headboard
The prototype spire was perhaps less than inspiring, but it showed the idea.
A prototype lizard crawls past behind.
Some hours later and it has gone dark. I'm still welding.
The lizards are steel sheet, cut to shape, their scale texture punched in from the reverse, beaten freehand to shape and then coloured by heat and oil.
Hot oil gives a nicely reptilian colour variation across the lizards' scales.
Total time was about two weekends, for two people doing most of the work on it.
