Don and Scot met in Leaburg, Oregon while both were apprenticing under a well known Northwest metal sculptor. The friendship was forged. Don had a background in logging and Scot had worked in pipe bending and metal fabrication. After being laid off from their jobs they both found themselves working in this strange new environment and quickly realized their past working skills could be applied.
After years of study they began to apply their new found passion and ideas in a joint effort of creating their own sculptures. With never ending imagination and vision, they are sure you will see new and exciting concepts and designs for years to come.
Both men live in the Willamette Valley in Oregon where they find much inspiration from the beauty that surrounds them.
They share a common passion for family and the outdoors as well as helping within the community. They find peace and purpose through their artwork. Whether at home, with their families, in the studio, or cruising the highways on their Harleys, they are always in the creative process.
In The Shop
Scot and Don start by designing a piece on paper. Then they take it to the metal, and in the process of cutting, shaping, texturing, and flame painting the metals, they create the scene they envisioned in their minds.
All the work is done by hand and the natural beauty pulled from the metals is what creates these works of art. Acrylic paints or foils are sometimes used as accents, but otherwise it is the flame and heat that creates the color.
