Rusty Oliver is creating Industrial art

The kind of art I like to produce requires industrial equipment, heavy power, and, sometimes, a small army of volunteers.

I've maintained a 3000 sq ft of studio space since 2005 by fabricating, and teaching, but running a small business tends to consume all my resources and makes producing expensive, dangerous, experimental art that much more difficult.

I have come to the conclusion that it is insane to do this without public support.

I'm happy to discuss my process and share my expertise. I would love to be able to connect more with my audience. Knowing that other people share my passion for industrial art inspires me to improve. Talking about my work helps me to develop new ideas and think about the work from different perspectives. The joy of creating is that much greater when it is shared, and my work, in it's own odd way, is joyful.

It has taken a long time to put these skills and resources in place,  basically:

I've spent 15 years building a bonfire,

I am inviting you to light it.

Goals
$187 of $500 per month
I would love to produce short, topical, metal working instruction videos. Reaching this goal would free up enough time for me to get started. My business is very highly regarded for the instruction we provide in MIG, TIG, Oxy-fuel, and Stick welding. Subjects could range from "how to troubleshoot and tune up a MIG welding machine" to "Quick and dirty welding for artists" or "Welding and electrical safety" or even basic questions like "Do I need a TIG or MIG machine?" and more! Pledge now and help me reach this goal and you'll be first notified when videos are available.
