Cindy Chinn: Not Your Typical Artist


For the past few years I have been busy in my welding studio creating a wide range of metal artwork. I've had a lot of fun exploring the many techniques available using a welder and a plasma torch. I've also worked with creating new patinas to get just the right look on a new piece.

This page shows a variety of work I've created using up-cycled tools and parts I have found on my never-ending quest for "rusty gold".

I am available to work with with you on your unique commission, large or small. You can view more of my saws and other work on my new website, TheSawLady.com

I am currently working on a life size metal sculpture of two peacocks. You can follow the progress on my blog via this link.

Here's a special saw I made for the Scrap Metal Art Show in Doha, Qatar (it was the first piece sold there!).

I love designing buzzsaw blades and working to build depth and dimension to the design. Here's a recent blade made, also for the Doha show.

Below is a video showing my Crow sculpture. It is made from ceramic (body) metal (wings and frame) and glass (background). 24" Diameter

But I am known for my saws, which I have shipped around the world. Here's a special design I made for Nebraska's 150th celebration:

I also enjoy working on large 'yard art' and signs. Here's a piece I made for a local family using some parts which were found on their farmstead.

I was commissioned to create a number of pieces for a resort in France. Part of the project was making signs to mark where visitors could see certain animals, like porcupines.

I've had a lot of fun making a series of "Barnyard Portraits". I collect odd metal parts and put them together in to create this fun work.

But sometimes I just start building something without a set goal. That's when I end up with a piece like this cool table top!

I've also worked with copper and brass - such as on this large 30' x 6' wall sculpture. You can see more photos of it on my blog.
