Hobart, Washington (PressExposure) October 23, 2008 -- Fistfire Metal Art has just released a new section of their website that has all of the basics on Metal Art Welding, Metal Artists, and Metal Art Welding Furniture. This is part of a new community website that is all about Metal Art. Members and non-members can visit this Metal Art page on the FistFire website for free at: [http://www.fistfire.com].
Here is an excerpt from the new Metal Art Welding information webpage:
âMetal art welding is basically a form of sculpting in reverse. Whereas sculpting starts from a block of stone and the process entails the removal of all material not part of what is to be the finished piece, metal art welding starts with nothing and keeps on adding pieces until the work of art in completed. Two processes, converse to each other, but resulting in the same end.
Unlike sculptors who work in stones like granites or marble, the metal welding artist can use just about any metal, or combinations of metals he chooses to. He may form his creations out of virgin metal sheets, rods or pipes; or he may assemble existing pieces of shaped metal in to final product.
Welding is, in its most simple form, the joining together of two pieces of metal by heating the surfaces and then placing them together until the cooled metal forms a joint. There are different types of welding methods that can be used, depending on the types of metal involved and the nature of the joint â whether it requires strength, a fine finish, whether the metal can withstand high heat etc.â
There is plenty of more information on the new general information Metal Art Welding Website that can be found by visiting: [http://www.fistfire.com].
