Unique mixed media sculptures of recycled metals, stone and other materials.
Bobbi Rubingh, Sculptor
Outdoor art has always appealed to me, especially recycled metal sculptures. Having no welding experience, I took workshops in art welding at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico, and the 23rd Street Studio in Denver. I began creating on my own in 2009. I am inspired by nature, children at play, southwestern culture, many artists, and the unique materials I find while foraging through junk yards.
Sometimes I imagine the piece and search for the materials I need. Other times, the materials tell me what to create, and I just go with it. When doing custom pieces, I seek input from the clients...incorporating their personality into each unique creation.
