Incorporating New Designs Into Old Materials.

Moving from Ireland to Alberta, Canada in 2014, Metal art has always been a passion I wanted to explore. I started this in June 2016.

I incorporate new designs into old materials by using a mix of scrap metal and reclaimed wood for the majority of my art work. There are many materials that can be reworked with a little bit of effort, so instead of throwing them out they get a new lease of life on your wall.

A little bit about my process for creating.

I use a combination of hand plasma and CNC to cut the metal.

All images I trace or hand draw initially. This gives the final pieces a more authentic feel for me. It gives the piece a more natural rustic look as the lines and cuts are not perfectly symmetrical. Then the image is scanned onto the computer and it is fixed up to be made readable for the plasma CNC to cut.
Once cut, the pieces are hand grind and textured. Keeping with the natural look, I either grind and texture the piece raw silver or I spray a patina solution made from vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and salt. This creates it own random colours on the raw steel. So while of the similar design, this allows your order to be a unique one off a kind piece.

Finally the piece is then clear coated to protect the finish and sent to shipping.

Thanks for reading, I look forward to creating something special for you!
Ryan.
