Torch Cut Steel Sculptures

My work is inspired my nature, especially rivers and silhouettes of spruce and birch trees.

“Willow Creek” was inspired by a section of Willow Creek near mile 70 of the Parks Highway, Alaska.  The steel is cut using my oxy-acetylene cutting torch. This was a commission for a couple who love art and outdoor adventures. They wanted a contemporary piece that would remind them of their fishing trips.

  2. I like the pretty orange one. It has interesting variety in the background colors. All of the melty / jaggedy edges are nice to look at too. Nice work sis!

  3. You are so talented Amy. I love your artwork. Especially the trees and colour of the “Spruce in Blue” piece. Whoops, I’m spelling like a kiwi!
