Time for a little metal!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any images of the metal art that my husband, Mark, and I create together.  This time I’m going to feature a few projects that he’s done on his own.  These were items he created as gifts for some of his friends.  I love the fact that he’s gone from standing there just waiting for me to arrange pieces and point where he needs to weld to coming up with his own ideas and designs! He had talked about clocks for quite some time so it was fun to see what the final pieces looked like.

I think they turned out pretty awesome! If I were a little more familiar with used parts from heavy equipment I might even be able to tell you exactly what these are made from. 🙂 The lamp is a slightly shorter version of two matching lamps he made a few years ago.

I do know what part of it is – a cam shaft!  I kept one of the originals, it sits by my computer desk in my studio. How much fun is it to see these items recycled into art instead of being tossed out? Posting these photos makes me want to collaborate on some new metal art with him soon!

Brainstorming already,
