About 26yrs. ago I worked in a welding shop where we built expansion joints for ships, factories,etc. etc.
and was asked if I would like to take an apprenticeship to become a certified welder. I accepted with a huge smile 21yrs. old and full of energy, life is good!
3 months later the company closed and I'm out of a job and apprenticeship........and miserable.
I took a job at a news paper as an apprentice pressman which ended up the trade I was in for the past 26 years.
I still did a little welding on my hot rods and muscle cars when needed but very little.
Well I lost my job due to the paper being sold and during the time between the talk and sale I was pretty down in the dumps so, I found a way to amuse myself and still out of work now I'm still amusing myself, LOL!!!
As you know news papers are all on a death watch so I really don't think it wise to go to another one.



Anyway, here are some of my amusements I have many more an I'm starting to make furniture from virgin steel as well as scrap.
My choppers were made from nails, nuts, bolts, screws and various other pieces of hardware.
The ship and plane mostly scrap auto sheet metal.

Thanks for letting me share some of my work

(Grand Rapids, Michigan)

I am a graduate of Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I earned my BFA there in 1997, majoring in Illustration. I became interested in welding in 1998 while searching for unique objects to place in the backgrounds of a series of portraits that I was planning. After finding nothing suitable for my needs, I sought to make my own objects from the scrap in the shop where I worked, and upon doing so, I walked through a door into a world I wasn't sure I understood. I'm not sure I ever will either, but since then I have been exploring the world of welded sculpture, trying to find my place within it.
I have no studio. I don't even own my own welder. I get little time to work on art because I still work in the same shop I worked in when I graduated from Kendall. Despite those things, I still produce a piece of work on occasion. My work is small because first of all, I get almost all of my scrap steel from the place I work, and everything there is small. Second, I don't own a vehicle that is capable of transporting heavy loads. Third, as I mentioned above, I have no studio in which to work, so everything I create must be portable so I can get it to and from work, the place I do all of my welding.

When Pigs Fly

by Bill Morris
(Grand Rapids,Mi)

About ten years ago my wife gave me a "how to" book on salvaged garden art. There was a photo of a few pigs made from salvaged metal and an empty freon bottle. I had all of the tools and materials at my regular job so I made my version of a flying pig. Everyone that saw the pig said that I should make them to sell. So I ask for a welder and some other tools for Christmas and I started welding salvaged metal objects into art and selling it a craft shows. I now sell my wares at fine art shows around the midwest during the summer show season, and I plan to make my art full time when I do retire. More of my art can be seen at:

Dolphins In Steel mail - box stand art

by Dick
(New Milford, PA)

Dolphins In Steel

Dolphins In Steel

A few summers ago, one of our neighborhood kids went on a mail box and fence wrecking spree (7 boxes, 1 fence) with her boy friend's car. 4 of the boxes happened to be on the 5 year old stand which I built and maintained. An adult associated with the girl made an attempt to keep the kid out of more trouble than she could afford and cobbed the stand back together. It just looked ugly!

I own a Lincoln Pro MIG 175 welder and Hobart Airforce 400 Plasma Cutter. After 2 years of light and medium duty hobby and maintenance welding repairs, I had a desire to do delve into a little artistic work. My wife is a Dolphin fan (in many senses) and she also wanted the mail box stand fixed. I did the repair and made her an early Christmas gift in one - creating Dolphins In Steel.

The main panel is made from 12 ga. stainless sheet. I used the plasma cutter to cut the dolphin shapes, which I traced from pictures onto the metal and free-handed the wave patterns. The primary upper and lower wave patterns were created by a single cut (except lower panel inset wave crests), then the upper portion reversed and modified slightly to present an alternating chaos of waves. The dolphins were positioned and sandwiched between the main lower and upper wave sections then spot MIG welded in place from the back. Spacer/brace pieces were welded into the ends to maintain the proper spacing and wave relief. The left and right posts are painted 2 in. black pipe with 3/4 x 1/4 in. steel strap brackets welded on for panel mounting. The panel was worked with a sanding disk to create varying sheens at different viewing angles. It did turn out nice and she was pleased.

Primes

Primes

I am an unemployed aerospace engineer with nothing better to do. This particular piece was inspired by fractal patterned crop circles. They have a spooky appearance and seem to spin while standing still. I also tried to incorporate the golden ratio phi through the pentagonal arrangement. They are made from the clutch discs out of a GM automatic transmission and vary in overall diameter from 18 -24 inches. I've made versions using the first three prime numbers. They are welded together and can take a substantial fall, yet a mere thumbtack holds em securely to the wall.

"Dark Continent"

by John
(Reno, NV)

 Steel, Impala skulls, powder coat

Steel, Impala skulls, powder coat

Welding for Art Instructor at a community college in Reno, NV. I started my career as a pipefitter welder in Wyoming. During the boom of the seventies. I have been teaching welding for twenty-nine years. Technical welding for nineteen and welding for art ten. During this time I have continually worked on my metal sculpture predominantly in the abstract non-representational area. I do some representational work mostly in wildlife. This piece was done for Safari Club International to be on display at their annual show in Reno, NV. The base is a silhouette of the African continent. The two impala skulls opposing each other are displayed to create interesting negative space between them. The images are ever changing when viewed from every angle of 360 degrees. Both skulls can be removed from the metal bases for shipping. More work will be displayed. Student work can be seen on my faculty web page at tmcc.edu. Look for John Septiens site.

1959 Harley Art

Hi,
my name is John Felder. Been welder for 35 years, and have always fooled around making crazy things from metal.
This project just started out to be a frame of a motorcycle to put into the yard, but the more I worked on it it started taking shape into becoming a real piece of art. Well, I started taking more time and putting in serious thoughts into the bike. Well after many hours, here's how it ended up. The public has never viewed this bike, what few have seen it cannot believe the detail and time i put into this bike. I want to find a market for it to sale. Anyone who knows a promoter of art like this please let me know. Thanks John Harley.
