CW Metal Designs
About Ron Wettlaufer
Art is not so much about the final destination but the journey.
All my pieces are unique and hand made by myself. Although some of the pieces, such as the trees, may look similar no 2 are alike.
Although metal is featured in my pieces I enjoy incorporating other materials such as wood, glass, stone and marble. Where possible I like to use recycled materials such as old window frames & screens, muffler pipe and glass. Recently I have started working with old wine barrels and incorporating the wood and metal rings into the art pieces.
My faith plays an important role in my work. It is only because of God’s hand on my life that this artistic talent has emerged. Many of my pieces incorporate the cross and Christian symbols. In some pieces, such as my crosses, it is obvious. In others, such as my generation trees it is not so clear but still there.
Trees play a major part in work, whether set in a scene or mounted in a rock. I realized that trees were always around me. Growing up in Southern Ontario’s farm country you could find trees in bush lots or line fences between the rolling farms. Living & working in Northern Ontario I was surrounded by trees and rock; always amazed how a tree could not only grow but survive in seemingly solid rock.
I enjoy working on custom pieces. Working with the client I design & build a piece to their specific requirements and desires while staying true to my artistic style. I have worked on pieces from 4” tall to three trees 8’ tall and 15’ wide.
