I have worked in 2 dimensional & 3 dimensional iron art since 1993. I like to describe my work as 'Whimsical Recycled Iron Art.' The principal iron techniques are cutting, forming and welding.
The source of the recycled iron ranges from cast-off industrial scrap, brake rotors from my auto mechanic, bike parts salvaged fro m a community bicycle shop (note: broken & worn out parts only) and a lot of curb scores.
On that last point, I thank you, if you would not be driving behind me when I see metal on the side of the road.
