This introduction to metal fabrication begins with the figure and then takes off. 

Each week will include presentations of past and current artist fabricated work to help us develop our own ideas and approach design challenges.

We’ll be learning how to use torches to move metal, the plasma cutter to make shapes, and MIG welders to construct our completed works in steel.

Rob Lutz
Sculpture and Design Fabrication Studio Supervisor

Rob began his artistic pursuits as a balance to his social services work. He planned to pursue jewelry design at University of Washington, but fell in love with larger scale sculpture during a foundations class and never looked back. His focus at UW was on foundry and photography, while he built his skills in glass techniques at Pratt in Seattle. He began working an arts technician while he was completing his degree work, and soon decided to make it his career- he enjoys the combination of process work and serving the arts community. His glass works are in numerous private collections in the Northwest and in the Museum of American Glass.
