Richard Walker – Artist / Fabricator
All of the pieces shown here are made by hand, by me, Richard Walker. I am a one man operation.
I have been building and fabricating things all my life. At age 14 I started restoring cars. My first one was a 64 ½ Ford Mustang Coupe, 260v8. My love of cars led to numerous projects ranging from sports cars to trucks, jeeps, and off road vehicles. I enjoy all types of fabrication along with restoration and mechanical projects such as engine building.
In 2002 I started building modern stainless steel sculptures . Over the past few years I have built thousands of sculptures, freestanding, lighted, wall mounted, indoor and outdoor. I specialize in working with stainless steel. The high gloss finishes are the same paints you will find on hot rods. Everything is built by hand.
A few years ago I was introduced to iron working and did numerous iron curtain rod projects and started working on some unique table ideas. I have been developing unique iron finishes and table designs.
More recently I introduced my series of outdoor rusty metal art. It is a fun departure from the world of hand polished gloss painted finishes. Stay tuned for many more designs.
