Moshe Katz's Profile

About

Thanks for visiting my Etsy shop and welcome to my sculpture gallery. I have been sculpting from steel for more than 20 years and have a lot to show you.

As a blacksmith and a steel sculptor, I fashion creations in a unique way, while preserving the natural qualities of the metal. I forge and chisel art forms from solid rods of steel using tools I invented for this purpose. The sculptures are then heated in a coal furnace and treated with an antioxidant to prevent corrosion and rust.

My work is displayed in my home and in my studio, where I welcome groups and individuals.

I have been widely exhibited:
June 2006 Partnership 2000: Jewish Community Centers in Washington DC, Maryland, USA
Oct 2006 Partnership 2000: Beit Shemesh, Israel
Dec 2007 HaElla Artists, Moshav Givat Yishayahu,…

I studied with a master, Uri Hofi, from whom I learned the basic techniques of a blacksmith. Then I developed my own individual practices to achieve the artistic sculptures you see in this gallery.

Because of the nature of blacksmith work, the results are all one-of-a-kind; no creation can ever be exactly duplicated.

I aim to provide high quality products in a professional way. If for any reason there is a problem with one of my products, just contact me and I will promptly handle the issue.

Enjoy!
