Russell Whiting: 30 Years

Whiting’s sculptures exhibit the strength of steel as a sculptural and elegant medium for expressing movement, form, and life.

Over the past thirty years Russell Whiting has developed specialized techniques of carving steel with an oxyacetylene torch, and he has employed this technique in crafting figures of remarkable elegance and drama.

The extreme techniques needed to manipulate steel in this way are usually limited to the fields of heavy manufacturing, as found in the oil and gas industries. Steel is more often cast, forged, or fabricated. Whiting employs a subtractive method in his torch carving, more usually reserved for wood or marble.
