About Me
Artist's Statement


Hello my name is Richard Alan Morgan and this site was created to share some of my
Metal Art that I have been creating.

During my 35year career I have worked in the welding
field working with metals. I occasionally welded gifts for family members and friends, but
basically viewed welding as a job but nothing more.

My perception changed on 3/10/08 when my wife and I were notified that our only son was
murdered in California on Venice Beach. With the stress from this along with the stress
from work….. Sleep was nearly impossible so after a while I ended up in the shop during
those restless nights instead.

It was then that “Welding” began to ease some of the grief and my creativity was
awakened and I began to transform into an artist and metal sculpture.

As I began to create metal art I found
that I wanted to create unique pieces of functional
and non-functional art.

Each one of his pieces is individually designed, cut,
shaped, welded by hand and is a challenge I truly
enjoy. Every piece is truly an original, and no two
pieces are alike.

I started making western style rustic pieces and have also
been making sculptures and jewelry.

The best thing is being able to create something out of
nothing, and making people happy with my art, is the
best thing about being an artist.

My pieces are great for the environment and have been
constructed mostly with re-claimed materials
