Finished black and white alphabet

It has been quite some time since I posted on this blog - back in January actually. I have been creating my black and white alphabet with a little added colour from rusted metal strapping; tin sheeting - painted white; anodised aluminium from old canisters; and pop-rivets. Whilst I had done a couple more monthly sets since January I had not posted.

Fiona's email made me get a hurry on to finish the whole alphabet. Today I did manage to finish it; and also put together the 3D piece I designed to display the alphabet.

So below are images of the finished B&W alphabet.

The 3D piece has been created to sit on a flat surface.

It still needs to be stabilised a little more and tape put on the ends of the wire rods so people don't cut fingers.


  1. OMG - what a lot of work you've put into this alpha. It is SO unexpected and creative! Having never worked in metals, I'm in awe. Nicely done!

  2. Clever work Barry. You have such an imagination!

  3. A great desk-top sculptural piece B -rugged and individual!


Thanks for taking the time to comment on our work - we really appreciate it!
