Hand-crafted metal art sculptures
Elegant. Contemporary. Stylish.
Welcome to Wolter Art Studio
John Wolter takes raw pieces of metal and transforms them into bodies whose motions defy gravity. Forming his works by hand, he revels in the physical aspect of making art, using hammers, grinders, torches and welding to bring to life expressive curved forms from pieces of cold, hard steel. That physicality finds expression in the exuberant movements of his figures – dancers and gymnasts whose grace is reflected in delicacy Wolter elicits from his materials.
The artist, a native New Zealander, says that music is also an inspiration to him, and one of his goals is to capture its essence in physical forms. With their dynamic forms and balanced compositions, his works embody the energy and control of music, and communicate that feeling vividly to the viewer.
