At the southeast corner of Lilly Science Hall is Lee Badger’s forged and hot-worked structural steel sculpture, Firelfy. Badger, from Hedgesville, West Virginia, "has a close working relationship with fire, a challenging artistic subject. Using high-tech fires from an electronic torch, and a gas jet furnace to cut and bend and I-beam into a form suggesting an opening zipper, adding forged steel flames finished with an oxide patina because rust is the way steel burns in air."
