Wind Powered Sunflower

Artist’s statement:

My sunflower is made out of a recycled pop bottle. I painted it yellow and brown. There is brown clay in the middle I used to secure it. We also made 3-D printed tripod stands and bases to hold them with pencils. I think making the flower petals was the most successful part. I had to change the position for the bead to help it spin better. This project was to show how wind can power the movement of the sculpture.

Here’s one more of the many projects that have been submitted
