Artist: Scott Sweebe
I started working metal as a high school sophomore because there were things I wanted and that was the only way I could afford them and I fell in love with shaping metal. In the ensuing decades I have made items that were totally practical and needed, practical and wanted, impractical and wanted and totally impractical, fantasy art pieces. Using minimalist frequently almost primitive tooling my ever-growing skills have enabled me to be in numerous shows and exhibitions. I have also been published in a few field related journals.
I like doing garden art because it has the potential of being enjoyed by everybody. I believe art should be more than something hung on a wall. It should be part of normal life and appreciated every time it is used. As an artist I work to create pieces that will create shared memories and experiences.
