METAL + ART

I am a Wisconsin metalworking artist and I've been in love with metal and metalsmithing for over 35 years.  I design and execute all of the metalwork from start to finish from sheets of brass, copper, aluminum and pewter.  Construction techniques include raising, forming, folding, filing, soldering, and fusing.  Surface patterns are created with handmade dies, stamps or textured hammers using roll printing, embossing, and hydraulic pressing techniques. 

The colors on my wall pieces are developed with a hot patina process which yields a rich, vibrant color not always associated with metal.

There are many "available" pieces ready to ship or I enjoy making work to your color and size requirements.  Check the archives for ideas.

If I can assist you in any way, please email at:
