“I thought about making a sloth climbing on my tree, when I realized that copper wire hair would patina to perfect sloth color... it was a plan. Sloths are funny; they are the only animals with hair growing away from their feet. When I was working on the claws, I thought I could have made a two toed.”
Dale Lewis is an Electrical Technician and Machinist who worked for a specialized machine builder. He quit his real job and was rehabbing houses for a couple of years before the real-estate collapse. By 2006 he found himself with plenty of time to experiment with making mosaic sculptures. In early 2010, realizing his hobby had become an obsession he bought equipment and started making stainless steel sculptures. My goals are simple, to get bigger and better and make people smile.
