Metal Artist Kelly Phipps

Clip | 6m 42s

Hood River metal artist Kelly Phipps transforms recycled, rusted metal into intricate lacey works of art. Kelly’s tool of choice? A plasma cutter, that heats gas to nearly 30,000 degrees, slicing through thick metal panels with ease. As Kelly says, “I’m drawing with fire.”
