Fox 13-Made in Tampa Bay: Metal becomes magic at Swartz Art

PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (FOX 13) - An artist in Pinellas Park uses metal, heat, and technical methods to construct faith, love, and hope in the form of works of art.


Clayton Swartz owns Swartz Art. His latest project is an abstract American flag made from welded aluminum.

"It's [called] Faith Hope and Love," Swartz explained. "Once that's completed, it's going to be painted with an automotive finish and will be a beautiful outdoor sculpture."

Most of the work Swartz does is painted metal, but he starts with pencil and paper.

"I start with a sketch that I will then cut. This gives me the elements of the piece that I'm going to make. From these pieces, this is where I will take the bent element, and I would start creating the volume of the piece, welding around and constructing the volume of the piece that I'm making," he explained.
