MADE IT INTO THE EQUINE JUBILEE SHOW! 

Well, my original goal was to have made something out of metal for this Equine Jubilee art show in August, but time didn't allow for that.  Just got the news today that the photograph below from the day at Return To Freedom made it into the show!  Fun news :) Had a little fun with a watercolor editing feature.  Maybe I can do more of this kind of thing along side the metal work.

SORTING IT OUT....  

Maybe you can gather by some of my other posts, I have been all over the board going to classes, looking at new techniques and almost maybe bragging about new experiences - to the point, in my opinion - that maybe I have turned some people off.  I am a little embarrassed about some of my overzealous posts on social media in that respect.     I have been going through some transitional changes in my career and life related to changes in direction in both businesses, some health issues and taking care… Read more

STRONG WOMEN, WILD HORSES  

Strong Women, Wild Horses is a character-driven documentary that brings a unique perspective to the controversy surrounding America’s wild horse population, their ongoing removal from the landscape at taxpayer’s expense and potential impact on the environment. The film delves into the issues through the lenses of women photographers who are documenting both how the horses live in the wild and how they are being managed into extinction. As each photographer shares their images, and their story we learn how… Read more

ARTIST STATEMENT

debra montgomery fine metal sculpture artist

 



I am a welder by trade, having changed careers in 2000.  I anticipated pursuing a very practical blue collar career when I went back to school.  In discovering the aesthetic versus functional aspects of metal along the way, it has proven to be an unexpected and fascinating detour in my vocational path.  

Working primarily in welded steel and the copper forming techniques of repousse and chasing, I value expressiveness and textures in my work.  An integral part of my style is accuracy and tangibility. When people see my work, I want them be inclined to reach out and touch it.

I do not always have a set plan when I start creating a piece.  There are mathematical formulas for elements such as proportions and scale.  Other times, the metal surface can, in essence, take on a life of its own, with the shadows from the lights hinting where the next hammer hit should be.  A good part of my passion for and the challenge I get out of my work is driven by my finding the way to the end result. 

I take great pleasure in utilizing traditional metalsmithing techniques, bringing into fruition, detail-oriented two and three dimensional art that would be considered non-traditional in nature.     
    
As I continue to hone my skills as an artisan, I hope to develop my portfolio into a diverse and extraordinary collection of work that one would not expect to be constructed out of metal.

Go to my WORK UNDER CONSTRUCTION page to see progress photos of some of the projects I have done or my FAQ page for additional information.
