Trapp IndustriesBNW Spring Show 2020/ Garden Art/ Metal
My creations are made out of stainless steel or rusted steel sheet metal and bar stock. I design the pieces in a CAD software program and cut the parts on my CNC plasma table. After the parts are plasma cut, they are hammered and shaped, polished and welded to create a 3D form for the house or garden.
My work is inspired by my time spent scuba diving in the Pacific Northwest and around the world. The waters of the Puget Sound and beyond are filled with unique and beautiful sea creatures. Some of my sea creatures are slightly abstract and stylized, while others are very lifelike and maintain accurate anatomy.
