To say the least, Milo is an artist. He creates paintings with a unique process of applying a colorless compound to stainless steel, which is then torched with a two foot flame to make otherworldly images appear.
From the Grammy Awards and House of Blues corporate offices to Hollywood private events, PBS features, MusiCares person of the year events and many art galleries, his art is exhibited and collected internationally.

Some of his most current artwork has been 2 paintings for the Grammy Awards. A painting of Fleetwood Mac as Greek gods and tribute painting of Prince.

-Frequently Asked Questions-


How do we start?

1.Let’s talk. 2.Pick out designs from photos. 3.Give me a simple sketch. 4.I create a 3D drawing and an estimate for our proposal. 5.Make a down payment to get on the calendar.

what is volcanic stainless steel?

Volcanic Stainless Steel is my invention. I wanted color and patterns in this great durable metal. I apply a secret sauce and burn the stainless with a 2 foot flame until the metal is red hot and somewhere near 1,000 degrees. The sheets move and bow off the burning table like a hot air balloon stretching it’s fabric. It cools and I carefully guide the metal until it’s flat again.

how durable is volcanic stainless steel?

Volcanic Stainless Steel is very durable. The color process is extreme heat and the color deep into the metal.

are your copper projects durable?

The copper I use is high grade and very long lasting. Copper is a soft metal so it does scratch but the character and color of the metal are part of what makes it so special. 

do you seal or treat your finished copper projects?

The copper finishes are left natural and only oiled after completed. Copper is one of the metals that is considered alive. I do a chemical and fire patina on all my copper projects. That finish mimics the natural aging process where the copper form a protective layer from weathering. I control the patina to give it a long lasting medium brown color. 

do you ship your works?

I ship my finished works all over the United States and beyond.
