I felt so lucky today…!

A reader sent this link to me and I was overjoyed to find more metal art (I love metal art…) albeit from England once again…  (Previously, I posted about Tom Hill, a horseshoe sculptor who also hails from the UK linked here.)

Today’s sculptor, William Wilson, is a welder come artist.  Love it.  And, even better… he became an artist by looking through the scrap bins at work and letting his imagination fly!  Yup.  He’s a regular welder who started fiddling with iron scraps and VOILA!  Art!

How wonderful to expand your vision into something so formidable and engaging to others.


A work in progress - from horseshoes!


Cape Buffalo bull



I did an Internet search and found just about nothing on him except for one news piece which I’ve attached here.

The news article I found...

Some of his work can be seen on his blog linked here.  He speaks about his pieces very simply and humbly.  I think it would be great to support him in his art… So, if you like his work, you can follow him here.  Or email him (williamwilsonsculpture@gmail.com)

It would be nice if he made equine art small enough to ship to us across the pond, eh?!

He also works in bronze.  There are several studies on his blog… I chose this one.
