About Todd Malenke

I became interested in forging steel in the early 1990s. For the past ten years my work has focused on directly constructed sculpture in which individual forged elements are assembled into a single sculpture. As for technique, I heat metal ,usually steel but sometimes copper or bronze, in a gas forge until it is red hot and then hammer it into the desired shape. In addition to this blacksmithing type of work, I use grinders, sanders, torches and welders. The work is normally finished with a natural oxidation patina which can vary from light bronze to red to peacock or gun blue. A coat of beeswax protects the finish from tarnish when displayed inside. Many of pieces are set on carved rock bases. I also carve stand alone sculptures from sandstone and dolomitic limestone. For inspiration I look to the sea plant life and the human figure.
