Dave Satterwhite is a sculptor whose works are primarily of metal, using found & repurposed objects. His sculptures are notable for their whimsy suggestions of movement yet, the subjects are sometimes very abstract and realistic. He creates art that he feels encourages people to look beyond the obvious and see the hidden beauty and meaning. He specializes in works for the garden and outdoors, most notably, Figures, Rustic gates, and Arbors but also creates works to be enjoyed indoors and in closed setting. “Freebird” 500 Hours of labor Several hundred feet of weld wire 515 Freehand cut feathers.
