After building a good working relationship with the owner and employees of Bracken Recycling, discussions about making a Bear out of recycled metal for the company started.  

This project started with their company logo and an idea in my head and I commenced on creating the image I envisioned.  

This was the largest project I have undertaken thus far.  It took me months to complete.  The Metal Bear stands over 8 Feet tall and weighs about 2 tons.
