Betsy Soifer - Metal Artist

Having completed some introductory welding classes, my lack of a supporting metal shop did not slow my need to create.  Using nuts/bolts/metal screws, a hack saw, an angle grinder, a drill press, and a drill, I enjoy the challenge of converting recycled scraps of metal [including kitchenware, plumbing parts, construction hangers, hub caps, knobs] into whimsical creatures for folks to smile at and enjoy.   I make free-standing creatures that mimic nature. Flying animals have always fascinated me and my constructions including pigs, birds and insects.  Wall-hanging pieces are either recycled metal taxidermy take-offs or modified mailboxes or clocks.
