About my new piece, "S.U.P.E.R.M.A.N."

"It's always funny to see how different my pieces turn out than originally planned. When I first started this piece it was going to be gray/black/silver/gold, very plain. A night sky instead of day. The city was also going to be gray and black. I guess I just can't get away from color. The robot is made up of 2 wood boxes covered in newspaper and paint and the legs are salt and pepper shakers.
The "pedestal" is a wood candle holder and the base is a wood trivet. Some of these pieces I had for months knowing at some point they would all come together.The candle holder was the last piece. This piece was a lot of fun to make and it was hard to stop embellishing the robot."
