Steel Dreams~

Don and Scot met in Leaburg, Oregon while both were apprenticing under a well-known Northwest metal sculptor. The friendship was forged. After years of study, they began to apply their new found passion and ideas in the joint effort of creating their own sculptures. Both men live with their families 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 their 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.

Steel Dreams, studio 2Steel Dreams, studio 1A metal artist’s skill lies in their ability to turn a plain, colorless raw material like steel into a beautiful sculpture that will last for generations. 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.  Each sculpture is carefully finished with a high quality clear coat, front and back, lasting for years without fading.

“We hope you enjoy our work as much as we enjoy creating it for you. The unique beauty and color we pull from the different metals makes each piece stand alone. And it makes all the burns and stitches worth it!”
