Thank you for your interest in the works of Bill Secunda. You have truly entered into a world like no other. Bill's unique, original sculptures bring delight to all who see them. His rare gift and unusual medium arouse curiosity everywhere his works are seen.Bill Secunda is a self-taught metal sculptor who delights in creating the most detailed of insects to the wildest of creatures. As a young boy he spent many hours watching a neighbor weld and fabricate heavy equipment. The welding process intrigued him. During welding classes, Bill would practice his welding techniques by turning lifeless scrap metal into his first artistic creations. Today his sculptures range from giant insects, realistic animals, to representations of Christ. http://www.weldart.com/Artist.htm
Bill's creativity comes from the appreciation of the beauty that God gives each creature, large and small. Adding personality, balance, and a sense of movement to every piece makes each one stand out. Most everything Bill sees, hears, or experiences provides inspiration. Bill delights in creating site-specific pieces with his clients, learning their personalities, likes and dislikes, and the conversations that stimulate joint creativity. The combined efforts have created such things as a sculpture of an 18' Fire-Breathing Monster emerging from a swamp in Alabama, a Troll that spits water on passing visitors, a garden sculpture of two Ticks jitterbugging on a globe for an entomologist in Georgia, robotic BBQ grills, and much more. Several of Bill's life-like sculptures were on display at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, and at Disney's Epcot. He has also created three large insect sculptures for the St. Louis Zoo. Several twelve-foot steel cockroaches can be seen climbing the ABC Pest Control building in Dallas. A large 35" diameter spider sculpture distracts drivers as they approach turn four of the Barber Motorsports in Birmingham. Ripley's Believe it or Not has purchased several pieces for their USA and International Museums. This year Bill is creating all the trophies for the Red Bull AMA US Rookies Cup.
Bill's sculptures have been spotted anywhere from people's gardens to the office of Senator Trent Lott. The sculptures are made from ferris and non-ferris metals, nails, tubing, and steel. Bill has found the delicate balance between cold, hard metal, nails and nature. His pieces come to life as he hand forms these materials into sculptures of Gorillas, Bears, Ants, Spiders, Creatures, and more importantly, Jesus on the Cross. Bill uses his gift to give each piece its own individual purpose, whether serious and thought provoking or just plain fun. It is always a surprise when you happen upon a Bill Secunda sculpture. They can be seen in museums, zoos, racetracks, a senator’s office, as garden art, or wandering across someone's back yard, the possibilities are endless. email@example.com
