Metal Sculpture and Woodturning

Ron Simon creates welded steel sculpture. He discusses how steel materials require a lot of planning. All of his work is done from sketches. He uses an acetylene torch to cut, weld and add texture to his steel sculptures. The three elements of art, design, design, and design, are encouraged in this video.

Gary Lansinger creates wooden objects of art using workshop tools. He demonstrates the wood turning process by using a lathe to create a wooden egg. The texture, growth rings, and imperfections are all incorporated into beautiful decorative and functional pieces.
