Jon Vaughn started welding at the age of 12 years old. He credits his grandfather with teaching and encouraging him to weld. Jon studied art in college and during that time he chose metal as his medium to express himself. His main artistic passion is sculpture. He uses unique techniques and handmade tools to create his one of a kind pieces. Large or small, Jon's sculptures start with a flat sheet of metal and grow into his vision. With cutting, shaping and welding, Jon completes his pieces with beautiful chemical rust finishes and automotive clear coat for a lasting durability. Jon finds the creatures and landscape surroundings of Southern Arizona his home and his inspiration for his unique one of a kind metal sculptures.
