Created by Ben Gatski and Kate Gatski
This piece was handmade by Ben Gatski in Pennsylvania. The metal used is from weathered steel. He hand draws the pattern on the metal with soapstone and cuts it with a hand held plasma cutter. He then hand hammers and welds it into shape. The blue was hand painted with milk paint. The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. Each piece will have subtle variations. They are cut by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences. Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny metal look [entirely optional] by applying a clear metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store.
