Artist: Tom Williams
Medium: Metal Sculpture
I play with fire so hot it can melt metal, electricity with enough voltage to start Frankenstein’s heart, light so bright it can burn your eyes. Sparks fly, motors whine. Bam! Bam! Bam! The hammer falls. Sweat pours off my forehead, hot embers singe my skin, my back aches, and I love it! I may not be a superhero; I am better. I am an ARTIST!
My sculptures are organic forms captured in metal. I make petroglyphs and pinecones, ravens and roses. I am an artist! Beautiful bells made from discarded tanks and delightful drums that produce musical notes. I am an artist. Soaring saguaros made from the Grand Canyon mule shoes. I’ve even shaped a planet – Mars to be exact. I am an Artist!
