Craig Zacharyasz creates whimsical indoor/outdoor sculptures out of recycled sheet and tubular copper which is cut and shaped by hand. He then brazes these components together using bronze or phosphorous copper rods and an Oxygen-Acetylene torch.
Ninety-five percent 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.
