Gary Caldwell has crafted distinctive, beautiful art in stainless steel for over 30 years. He is completely self-taught, with a flair for transforming sheets of stainless steel into fanciful three-dimensional creations. He first researches his subjects for anatomical accuracy. Then, with skilled hands and 6,000 degrees of heat, he bends and shapes flat steel into a life-like sculptures, and grinds, cuts, and/or welds to create texture on the surface. After this intricate process, he carefully heats the steel with a torch to bring out vibrant colors that include cobalt blue, burnished bronze, and coal black.
Below are some examples of his work.
