TOAE 2011: Dave Hind

Dave Hind is a thingmaker: it says so on his business card. He sculpts and paints with reclaimed metal-- riveting, grinding, and welding it until the images or forms take shape. Dave is also a super nice guy. Above are images of his aluminum works. The top and bottom images are overall shots and the three images sandwiched in between are details. Dave uses reclaimed aluminum siding, dog tags, trophy plaques, and other metal scraps with unlikely beginnings. You can see part of a trophy plaque in the red detail. The next time you are getting rid of all your dusty old bowling trophies, remember that Dave will put them to good use.
