Select Hand Formed Metal and Composite Automotive Sculpture

Every automotive sculpture in the gallery above is done entirely by hand with traditional coach building tools.  Although I primarily work in .050 aluminum I also create sculptures in stainless steel and carbon fiber. It is a tedious, arduous process that often takes over one thousand hours per sculpture depending on the size and scope.  It requires painstaking craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.  I take great pride in fabricating every single element from scratch.  Nothing is store bought or mass produced. This includes every little nuance right down to the custom formed headlights and bezels.

My obsessive attention to detail ensures that each sculpture has the same “uniqueness” of form and presence as the original car. Upon completion, I finish my automotive sculptures in the same premium, OEM paint used by the factory.  This color coat is then protected by several layers of the finest automotive clear. After applying the clear coat I spend dozens of hours color sanding, machine polishing and hand buffing. The final result is an unparalleled, mirror like paint surface that will endure the test of time.

I am proud to say that unlike many other artists my automotive sculptures are not easily duplicated. One key item that sets me apart is that every automotive sculpture I create is a bespoke “one-off” tailored to my client’s specifications.  I do not create cookie cutter sculptures. I do not create castings or molds for limited editions. I do not create dies so that I can stamp out sculptures in large numbers. This would negate my goal of creating a unique, hand crafted sculpture that embodies the nuances of the lost art of metal shaping.

I want each automotive sculpture to be is as individual as its’ collector and the subject matter. I offer a personal guarantee that my sculptures will never be reproduced or duplicated, thereby ensuring their rarity and exclusivity. In a time of mass produced art and high volume reproduction pieces my automotive sculptures are truly original works of art.
