A life-long artist and maker, Michael Shewmaker became inspired early on by grand works in public spaces. The idea of creating them himself came about after metal smithing became his chosen medium. He liked the idea of moving metal, and discovered the method of "raising" metal–hammer hit after hammer hit. His 40 years of experience led him to create grander and grander works of art and now his only limitation is the size of the shipping containers his work is often transported in.
