Stuart works in welded steel, often with brass and copper enhancements.  Using oxygen and acetylene welding and a process called Direct Metal Sculpting and some blacksmithing techniques to create his works.

His themes are nature related.  Trees in groups and single trees are his signature themes.  Stuart is a retired engineer who works full time at his art.  Prices range from $45 for small pieces to over $2000 for large, highly decorated pieces.

Stuart has been making metal sculptures since 1966 when his father took a course in welding, bought the equipment and together started sculpting.  He still has the original piece they made together.
