“I’ve always designed and built what i would like to have for myself”, explains Joel. “When i give something a thump-test, i want it to be rock solid. I most certainly don’t want anything faux.” This design criteria goes into every piece that he creates at The Weld House.

Andrew Chase works with painstaking detail to create his remarkable steampunk sculptures — an impressive collection of animal-inspired artworks made from reclaimed steel sheets, car parts, industrial equipment, and more. Each sculpture takes Chase between 80 and 120 hours to complete, and they can be adjusted into different postions. His cheetah sculpture, seen above, has been sculpted from electrical insulation fittings, parts of a car transmission, and another 20 pieces of steel. Surprisingly, it only weights about 40 pounds!
