Slim

Dale Lewis – Minnesota

I’m an Electrical Tech. and Machinist who worked for a specialized machine builder. After leaving the work force, I found myself with time to experiment with making mosaic sculptures. Eight years ago I bought equipment and started making welded metal sculptures.  My hobby has become a full time obsession for me. I try to make each piece entertaining, one recurring comment I hear from people is that my art makes them smile. That’s what makes it fun! There’s no turning back now, this is what I want to do, when I grow up!

Slim is a life sized elephant made by wrapping strips of grey painted steel around a steel rod armature. The strips are cut from salvaged equipment door panels. He has Direct TV satellite dishes for ears and Harley mufflers for tusks. All of this makes him a bit of a Junkaphant.
Slim asks “Do these ears make my ass look big?”
