The processes and techniques of working with a medium as hard as steel brings calmness, joy
and a sense of deep peace within myself. In transforming steel into organic sculpture my hopes
are that others who experience the work in person have some sort of feeling, provoking thought,
reflection/introspection or it helps them see in a different light.
David Gonzalez began his craft in steel and welding in his hometown of Albuquerque, NM. In
his early 20s, he relocated to San Diego to continue his love of steel and welding. While in San
Diego, he began his creative art designs through his business Iron Insanity, and started
developing and growing his artistic style. After 11 years in San Diego, David was given a 6
month opportunity to focus on his steel sculpture in British Columbia, Canada
Following David’s 6 month chapter in Canada, David chose to find a new home to continue his
growth in steel art. He is now an artist resident of Portland, OR. His 18 years of personal growth
and development in his art transformed his business from Iron Insanity to David Gonzalez Sculpture. He is a current board member of PNWS, a teacher to students who desire to learn steel art, and an award winning metal alchemist of steel art. He comments, "I have been very blessed with the people and friends and I've connected with throughout my journey in life."
