While the world around us echoes our modern-day customs, working
with metal using age-old traditions still plays an important role
in the world of art. Creating each beautifully intricate piece
from common cut steel nails, Ron Schmidt’s creations are
a reflection of his unrivaled artistic vision.
The Michigan native
has been an innovator in the field of dimensional art since
the 1960’s, but it wasn’t until late in that decade
that he began working with metals and a welding torch. The result
was the creation of abstract sculptures that have graced the
walls of countless homes, businesses and of exclusive art galleries
all around the country.
work utilizes such a unique combination of artistic design,
geometric form and high quality braze, that it has earned him
the well-deserved title of “The King of the Nail Sculptors”
amongst his peers. Rising above the label of just decorative
art, his sculptures are individually created and unique, since
no molds are used.
matter which piece you choose, it will be completely one
of a kind. Each wall hanging utilizes brazing alloys such

process where they are masterfully glass-bead blasted, wire
brushed and coated with protective sealant for a maintenance
free finish. The result is a testament to the craftsmanship
through which each piece is created.

them horizontally, vertically, and even diagonally to suit your
