Craig Zacharyasz

 

Hometown: Middleburg Heights, OH

Discipline: Sculpture

Craig Zacharyasz creates sculptures out of recycled sheet and tubular copper which is cut, hammered and hand formed. He then  brazes these components together using bronze or phosphorous copper rods. Finished pieces are cleaned and lacquered.

95% of the material content of each of his works is recycled copper. Craig allows the metal’s past life, the environment and those who worked with it, contribute to the personality of it’s current form. The goal is not to make a statement but to evoke laughter, whimsy, or maybe a moment of refuge from one’s cares and concerns.

Craig has had a minimal amount of formal art instruction. Most of his techniques are self taught through trial and error and close observation of other artists.
