Hammered Feathers

I had this idea for the roll of old copper cable I brought back from the MT ranch: turn it into feathers that would act as a wind-tail for the Unicycle Covey. The wire is wrapped in cloth sheathing, so first that has to be stripped away, after sectioning it into lengths. I made myself an “anvil” with a scrap piece of small I-Beam, put a piece of carpet under it, and clamped it to the table. With a small butane torch I heated the copper cable, hammered, heated, hammered, and so on. Once they were all formed out I soldered them to a small section of copper tubing, then sleeved that into a larger section of copper tubing and clamped it to the spinning platform below the birds (on their own small unicycle).
