Hammered Sculpted Still Life

Artisan Blacksmith Walter Howell hammer sculpts works that replicate natures designs. From full trees to single leaves  each work is a realistic iron replication of the world around us. With an eye for the small details and a love of things that live around us here in this place we call home, Walter creates scenes from our world with fire and hammer.  While botanical subjects are this artist favorites his commissioned works have had a wide range of diversity. He always enjoys a challenge and the opportunity to show what the gift he has been given.
"Duet" Two Sand Hill Cranes trumpet their call over a hand hammered bowl. The piece sits atop a black walnut slab.

"Trumpet The Mornings Glory"       

Walter's newest work is a full size sandhill crane as it trumpets the call of spring among the cat tails on the rivers edge. Attention to detail is what sets the artist work apart from others. This piece will be on exhibit at the end of the year at The Carnegie Visual Arts Center in Decatur, Alabama. We are very honored and excited for this opportunity to showcase the work that Walter enjoys the most.
