Spring 2018

It has been a very busy spring here in my studio. As you might know, I started making torsos with washers in February. Consequently, I started making animals with the washers. These sculptures are one-of-a-kind and I’m completely free hand. If you’re interested in a sculpture of your dog or animal, please send me a picture to my email SamsWeldedArt@yahoo.com or use the contact page here on this website. I’ll be sure to give you a time frame and cost.

Thank you so much for visiting my website. Each item I create is inspired each and everyone of you in my life

Bench Sale!!!!!!!!!!!

I just went and got the last of the wrenches at the scrapyard. I will not be making more once this batch of wrenches is gone. I normally sell them for $150 and up but I’m selling them at the clearance price of $75 each to get them gone so I can get back to my horseshoe art.

Feeling very blessed.

Last week I received a phone call from a well established upscale gallery to make an appointment to view some of my artwork this week. The appointment was TODAY....I am sincerely honored to be their newest artist to the gallery. They have already made their first initial order of four pieces. The legal papers are in the process- Yes, there are legal papers involved. 
I won’t be selling a small particular portion of my art to the public any longer. 
I want to express The most sincere heartfelt thank you and love to all of my friends and family who inspired, motivated, complimented, kept me going and kicked me when times got tough and felt like quitting. All of my love and thanks to everyone- especially my 3 beautiful children who inspire me every single day. Stephanie Sparks, Dustin Wagner, Whitney Wagner & Asan Sakanishi. I am so very blessed.

My Passion

The love and passion I have for welding and creating have opened new doors for me: to become a metal artist.

Every piece I design and create is like I’m creating it for myself, bringing my creative side and metal together. No two pieces of art are ever the same. Each piece has my heart and soul welded poured deeply into the depths of my unique creation in-which every piece tells a true and grand story. Although it saddens me to see each piece leave my grasp because it’s a true part of my inner thoughts, ambitions, and passion. It fills me with joy knowing someone has fallen in love with my art, as much as I did to create it. Like a writer putting words to paper writing a heart pounding novel- Metalwork to me is an amazing way to explore and express my inner childlike fantasies in which allow me to express in the form of a tangible piece of art for all to admire and enjoy.
