For the past 30 years Stephen Hogan has been collecting steel and creating sculptures. After attending a Sculptural Welding course at the National Art School in 2012 he had the skills and confidence to begin turning this interest into a serious art practice. He has always admired the artistry, craftsmanship and beauty of old hand-forged and manufactured machinery parts. Where others just see scrap steel, he sees beauty, form and shape. He creates pieces that respect and preserve the original but strives to give them new form, life and meaning in a modern context. He is now working full time as a sculptor from his studio in Bathurst.
