"My name is Robert Sadlemire, I am a conceptual structuralist, builder, metal artist and owner of Sadlemire Metal Custom Designs & Installations. With over 30 years of art & metal fabricating experience, I specialize in custom built grand staircases, gates, historic restorations, replicas, unique metal art works and monumental public sculptures.
My mechanical curiosity and desire of manipulating metals from functional to conceptual, has been the common denominator from the very beginning. I have created and invented methods and machines that shape metal into works of art. Over the years my work has evolved from exploring representational imagery, making steel seems as if it is soft and flowing using my signature spiral techniques to the now conceptual geometric motion sculptures.
When I am commissioned for a project, there is an excitement to solve the vision using my mechanical experiences and methods of structural theory.
I have had a mechanical freedom in my soul that has grounded my conceptual thoughts, with the discipline of the reality of metal.
The exploration is to unfold my creative process into works of art that can explain known and unknown mysteries of the human struggle."
