Howdy ArtMetal folk. I dunno if I'll ever update this blog but I love browsing and will likely continue to update my picasaweb album as I go (see signature).

Figured I'd start with a post of a tiny history with a couple images.

Olive and stainless

Base is cold formed 7 guage stainless (3/16").
the pipe is 1/8" wall.
lots of stainless rod reinforcing underneath.

I hand slabbed an olive tree trunk ages ago and finally used up the last slab.

Volcanic Stainless Steel

Is anyone familiar with this technique of coloring stainless steel with heat? An Oregon artist named Milo uses a liquid he doesn't identify to "paint" images on 300 series mill finished stainless steel sheet. He then uses a torch to burn the images onto the sheet and claims the resulting color and image are permanent. I'm curious what chemicals he could be using. There is a video on his website where you can watch the process. One of the chemicals appears to be similar to a petroleum jelly and the other is a liquid that is sprayed on the image.
