Based in Kilcormac, County Offaly, Ross Hathaway is the artist behind Metal Mayhem, crafting works of art from mild steel and copper. Ross wrangles sheets of cold, flat metal into lively, sometimes whimsical shapes that seem as natural as the plants, clouds, bubbles, stones and laughing mountain streams that they suggest.
Many of Hathaway’s pieces are functional: mirrors, clocks, centrepieces, candle holders and picture frames - which create a bold and dynamic focal point for any room.
And Ross's wall sculptures elevate the medium of metal into the realm of fine art. These are complex and energetic compositions combining different metals and shapes, heat colouring and ground textures in dramatic ways. A Metal Mayhem wall sculpture transforms any room into an art gallery.
