Here is the cool steel flower sculpture that I traded a piece for at Saturday's show. It was created by Tim and Donna Frady from the Brevard, NC area. His job at a plant up there ended a couple of years ago, I think he said the plant closed. So, he decided to pursue his part time hobby all the time. He and his wife travel around close to home and do shows. They also get to scour thrift shops and yard sales to find things that he later transforms into a variety of creatures and found-object sculptures.
He told us a story about creating and installing a dragon stair rail for a lady who wanted something unusual to help her down a tricky set of stairs in her yard.
