Dave Watts started metal sculpting in a friend's garage in the early 1980's. A decade later he began to carve wood, and by 2000 he was creating art in the medium of stained glass. Since that time he has honed his craft to meet the needs of the art market. Not only has he taken up fusing glass, and twisting wire, but also he has learned how to create mosaic art.

Even broken and discarded glass is recycled into mosaic art. Visit Dave's glass studio at Pink Dog Creative to browse the items for purchase, or inquire about upcoming classes.
There are two metal sculptors in this south Asheville warehouse, who create large and small pieces of metal art from found and purchased material. We are makers and artists, who display our works at local galleries. If you would like to learn how to join metal to make art, call Dave to inquire about a metal sculpting class.
