Later, found out the best operation process, what kind of materials, colour and etc. Finally, the prototype was be produced and improved a process a little.
After the product was finished, it was time for taking the photo. I tried to submit to www.designboom.com and the effect is quite good.
As it is the handmade production. Sometimes, by using the welding technique may causes of some error, such a twist shape while welding. Or human does its is an error while working.
