I was looking for a unique weathervane and this is definitely it. I know it will generate many comments from those who walk through the gardens. Thanks so much for your creativity and fine craftsmanship.

What a fun, whimsical design. It is quite substantial, too! I can't wait to place it in service. I hope it doesn't leap off the wall! Thank you!

About

After many years of using a wide variety of mediums; I find myself at this point in time...welding for the last 13 years.

To learn more about SisterSTEEL...Please take a moment to watch the interview I was fortunate enough to have with KSPS public TV here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest called "Northwest Profiles" aired October 29th, 2015 on YouTube titled "Steeling Smiles" https://youtu.be/ckEOUCIdqfk

WELCOME ~ The Sister Steel shop offers a variety of art …always wanting to try something different to test my imagination and skills…an evolution of sorts. Materials used range from acrylic paint on watercolor paper, to tile, to bone and beads, to salvaged steel and beyond. Some items are meant to be utilitarian where others only exist to delight.

Much of the imagery has to do with being a lifelong resident of the beautiful and wild Pacific Northwest state of Washington, my love of the outdoors and the irresistible charm of animals; infusing humor wherever possible. “Life without laughter would be just too pitiful”.

The future plans for welded metal art pieces for the yard and home include kinetic or wind driven art (ooooo… more weathervanes :) , gargoyle/rain spouts, garden gates and music stands. I have a particular fondness for interactive art, there’s a special joy to seeing them come to life! I am always open to suggestions or special requests.

The artwork is hand crafted or repurposed right here by me. ..MADE IN AMERICA with more than a bit of pride; as I puff out my chest and do the “ALL American Girl” strut ;)

Thanks for stopping in…please come again.
