Welded Weathering Steel

Leaves are Mother Nature’s expressive and hard-working hands. It’s a windy day and hats are off. She’s tossed them up in the air, and they’re blown away in a swirl of leaves. The leafy arm that carries the hats rotates in the wind on it’s fixed, stump-like base.
A spiraling trail of leaves follows the hats’ trajectory blowing in the air. Their looping arc reflects the motion of a classic discus throw or a backhand frisbee toss. Mother Nature has tossed your hat to the wind. It’s her fling thing !
