Sometimes to make a good living out of art you need to think outside the box, in fact, this is a key quality to have! Well, one artist used this term literally and created an awesome set of art pieces using nothing but keys and coins. Michael Moerkerk is working under the blowtorch to create his art pieces, The Australian started his career creating spheres and balls but moved up from there to create amazing bottles and wine glasses to female torsos, he even worked on a dolphin at one point. Many of his creations are for sale on Etsy and you should visit and get your own before they run out.
Moerkerk says he only had one day of lessons in soldering thirty years ago and the rest of his knowledge he got from watching YouTube. As you already figured, he’s a self-taught artist that works with wood and also photography, but it’s his metal work that got him famous , even if it was by accident ” Not so long ago, when I was supposed to be cleaning out my shed, I came across some old copper pipe saved from a previous renovation. I cut it up into rings and started making it into spheres. The first ones were a bit rough but once I worked out the technique I got creative” Visit these social links for more info: facebook | Etsy
