Chicago Skyline Silhouettes
Silhouettes in Steel are first drawings, created in the Auto CAD (computer-aided design) program on the artist’s computer. From there, after a few test runs, the computer guides a plasma cutter to form the large images on large sheets of metal. Welding is also employed for metal joinery, decoration or to embellish a design. All works are clear-coated at the end of the process. Oxidation is a chemical etch used to give metal a unique weather finish. Every piece is created in the artist’s workshop in the Northwest.
Handmade in America. Handmade items may have slight variations.
