About Thewelder

After serving 4 years in the Marine Corp from 1963-67 when I got home I started an apprenticeship with the plumbers union, Part of my training was learning the basics of welding. I immediately took to it and have been doing it ever since.I have welded around the country in a lot of the nuclear, and major power plants. I always thought of using my welding skills and applying them to creating art. I love working with the different steels and manipulating them with welding or forging. I am retired now from power plants but still love what I do, forming metal, all my birds and fish are started with a solid block of steel and then ground down to shape. They take a lot of time so in-between all that grinding I try to have fun with some lawn art and furniture. I now live in Northwest Montana, How can you not do art surrounded by all this beauty and inspiration.
