Ted uses the vintage Victor oxy/acetylene cutting torch to cut out a crown.
Did you know that each piece of metal art sculpture we make is a collaborative effort between Ted and I? Each piece of metal art that we make begins with Ted in the blacksmith with a flat (or relatively flat) piece of recycled sheet metal. The pattern is sketched onto the metal then cut out using a vintage Victor oxy/acetylene cutting torch. The pieces are then hand formed and textured, then welded back together to complete the base layer. This is where I come in. The pieces then come into the studio for a good scrubbing and are prepared with a light coat of primer or gesso. Each piece is then hand painted and embellished. Each piece has the hands of two artists on it before completion.
