Base plates tack welded into position

The two plates making up the larger of the two "mountain" bases for the sculpture are welded together after surface is finished in an overlapping grinder pattern. The Corten steel will oxidize to a rich rust color once exposed to the elements.

The grinder pattern wraps around inside the hollow base and tapers off. More welding on the ridge is on deck.
