Sculptures in forged and welded steel, stainless steel, bronze by Barney Zeitz.
Zeitz uses all hand forged and direct welding techniques in his metal
sculpture. There is no casting involved. Everything is cut
from sheets or bars and hammered hot or cold, then welded with either
gas or electric welders. He uses hand tools for grinding and polishing. His favorite material is stainless steel, which he has worked the technique over the years to get amazing results. Stainless steel is a very hard material, but Zeitz has figured out a way, with patience, to get the results he wants. Stainless steel is very durable and has excellent luminescent qualities. It glows in low light situations, like dawn and dusk, making the work more noticeable than bronze at certain times of day.
