Guest Blog – Glamming up Metal and Making ArtPosted: October 27, 2015
I only found boredom in the normal day to day routine. So to fill the void I found ways to channel my ideas into creations.
It started with a passion for playing drums. Teaching myself by creating music that was both original and powerful. Trying to bring something different to the table. This is the same concept I have for my metal work.
I started tinkering with some of my dad’s scrap steel and his old welder about two years ago. It was whilst doing this that I taught myself how to do everything I needed to make my sculptures. I have only been creating sculptures for two years, and I work so making metal art for me is a full time hobby.
The skeleton hand was one of the first things I made. I wanted to make it look like something straight out of the horror movies that I’ve loved all my life.
My inspiration is kind of called “Glam Rot.” Putting an old rustic look on things and glamming up the not-so- pretty. On my commissioned pieces I will find a way to blend my own ideas and give it a creative twist, with a rustic, yet clean cut look.
