The nationally juried show and sale will take place this weekend. This will be my fourth year attending and I am excited with my new work. Still putting the finishing touches on a Stainless Steel piece titled A Family Tree, a joint project with my wife who originally did this piece in wood (maple and walnut), I always thought this would be perfect for a large public art piece in Stainless Steel and Core ten, weathering steel, so I decides to make this maquette.

Hoss Haley came to UALR Applied Design and held a workshop showing how he made his steel erratic forms.

This is my version from the weekend.  It was made from 1/8″ sheet steel that was cut, hammer formed, and then oxy/acet welded. A         “bronzed” patina was added to finish the piece.
