David graduated from Trident Technical College with 4 certificates in Welding. While in college he competed in two years of the SC State Welding Competition, placing 2nd and then 1st. He has been commissioned to make trophies for the last two years of the Cooper River Bridge Run. And he has made art pieces for ESPN 2014 & 2015 Super Bowl Parties.
David’s art is made from recycled plate steel. He programs the images into the computer and then cuts the plate steel, grinding them clean and bending then into shapes. Hangers and tabs are welded on to the back. The pieces are sprayed with a powder coat color, and baked in a special powder coating oven. A second clear powder coat is applied and the piece is baked again.
