In 2002, Terry began using his welding talents to make unique metal garden art.
His pieces range from yard ornaments, to large arbors, to whimsical pieces composed of recycled scrap metal.
The family takes great pleasure in seeing what Terry will do next with recycled metal and how he will bring it to life.
For example we all thought Terry was crazy when he asked us to find him broken metal toasters.
Now they are transformed into pigs with curly tails.
Old burnt out light bulbs magically transform into lightening bugs with antennae and wings.
Terry's creations have become so popular he was awarded the People's Choice award in 2006 and 2007
at the CrackedPots Garden Art from Recycled Materials show at McMenamin's Edgefield in Troutdale, OR.
We are all eager to see what he will come up with for this years show, at this point he is keeping it top secret.
Most recently, Terry and Sue have also discovered ways to incorporate fused glass into Terry's metal sculpture.
The glass has been made extra thick from being fused in a kiln and will withstand the crazy Northwest weather.
The mix of glass and metal is creating a look that is truly unique!
