Artists who use steel and welding in sculpture

Using metal and welding techniques to create sculptures was a method employed by many famous artists.  Julio Gonazalez, David Smith and Pablo Picasso stand out in this field.  It’s worth checking out the many online resources published about these artists.  The range and variety of inspiration that can be derived from their work is limitless.  We would thoroughly recommend the following websites as a starting point for research.

You will find many images of their welded and metal sculptures.  Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook are  also a great sources of welded art information and images.  Check out HWM Designs Twitter, Facebook Page and Pinterest, we’ve got load of links to creative companies and individuals.

Design ideas and where to find them

We like to hunt out radical designs and superb creativity.  In our view, the hot rod and custom bike industry often leads the way in stretching standards and in opening up radical lines of design.  We've linked to some good hot rod Facebook pages that you can reach from HWM Designs Ltd Facebook page:

One of our particular favourites is:

The rat rod designs you'll find on posted on their page are great examples of pushing the limits of design and thinking.  If you're into any form of metal working or generally like all things automotive, you should check them out.

Some inspirational metal working

Working with metal, in all its forms, is a great pass time and an ancient skill.  We particularly like looking for inspirational craftsmen  and seeing how they carry out their work.  At the HWM Designs Ltd Twitter Feed!/HWMRob we have a number of followers who produce some really impressive work and we think that it's well worth visiting their sites.

Dragon Forge Ltd have posted a time-lapsed video of some of their forge work at:
