Hand-hammered nature and guitar sculptures from scrap copper, brass, and aluminum

Artist Profile

Mark Noll from Mark Noll Metal Art has been creating this metal art for twelve years and loves to experiment with different designs, tools, and patina finishes. In that time, the fish, marine mammal, bird, dragonfly, butterfly, and guitar pieces have made their way to patrons all over the country and around the world. Cooly, his most famous patron is the legendary rock guitarist Slash. His wife Perla gave him a Les Paul guitar sculpture for their tenth anniversary, and it hangs in his home studio.

Artistic Process

Your metal nature sculpture is made from a sheet of solid copper, brass or aluminum. The metal is repurposed, usually found at a scrap metal yard. Sometimes, I use naturally-aged pieces of copper or brass that were tucked away in a corner somewhere for many years.

First, I draw the rough shape on the metal and cut it out with aviation snips. Chisels, punches, hammers, and mallets bring the form to life. After polishing the surface with ultra-fine steel wool, I etch it with a patina solution or wipe on an antiquing wax.

Finally, the piece is brushed with a clear coat to preserve the colors and finish, and a glass taxidermy eye is added on some pieces. I’m self-taught and use a blend of tools from traditional metalworking, auto body work, and woodworking.
