The main reason i make welded metal sculpture and my art is because it is inspirational. I am fascinated by the idea of making something beautiful that has never been seen before. More-so of creating something that’s very unusual and interesting to look at.
Even though i continue the use of a sculpture material I’m familiar with, i am always challenging my ability to improve. It’s this measurable improvement level that is also inspirational.
Its inspiring to have an idea to make an artwork. I have an idea of what it might look like but until its all finished, I don’t know exactly how it will turn out.
The process is inspiring when I see my vision starting to take form and i feel a sense of control in that its becoming what i want to see. Its a gamble too because sometimes when you spend hours upon hours sculpting a work of art and it may turn out undesirable.
Its really inspiring to Finnish a sculpture. After all the ideas and effort are done i can reflect on how successful the piece is. I get to think about how much I’ve progressed in my skill and what i have learned.
Sharing the artwork with the world and seeing people get inspired from its presence is also very inspiring.
The whole process is inspirational and If i can pass on that inspiration in one way or another i think I’ve made this world a better place to live in.
