Silver tree sculpture

I’m working on a sculpture for college at the moment. It’s not finished yet but you can see the bones of it: a weeping tree with silver leaves. It’s designed to be displayed outdoors, the leaves move in the wind or rain. They are cut from 0.3mm aluminium, the tree itself is mild steel mig welded together. The welding is fantastic, I’ve wanted to learn it for so long. I’m looking forward to seeing it finished in my yard, the leaves should flash in the sun and weep in the rain.
