Introduction: Metal Sculpture
The work I am showing off in this slideshow is from my dad, Brian Earle Edman, who passed away a couple of years ago. I have been wanting to display his work on the site, but I didn't feel that we had the right format until now. I wish I could have created some Instructables for the processes he used to bend/tie rebar, make metal flower pedals and for his handmade hooks.
The sculptures are from the 60's when he attended the San Francisco Art Institute. He was a true artist and couldn't get his head around doing art for money, so he went the utility route and started making hooks and kitchen racks. All of his work used recycled steel and anything else he could find. He had thousands of tons of scrap metal he collected over the years at his shop.
