Artist Statement:
Milo is a metal artist and crafstman. Starting as a teen in the 1980’s and after finding he had a natural ability to easily work with metal and create works of art from it, he soon went into business for himself. With a love for the arts and a commitment to his craft, he consistantly creates beautiful works. Milo calls his art, Volcanic Stainless Steel Paintings. His invention of painting on sheets of metal with fire. Sometimes his chosen topics speak about social injustice and sometimes they’re simply about celebrating living. His work has recieved widespread international acclaim.

For several decades, Milo had been on the hunt to invent a new way to color metal. Without toxic acids and chemicals that were considered the only way. It’s been his passion and his monster. Developing many unique colors, patterns and textures over the years kept him on the hunt to painting on metal. The process he now calls Volcanic Stainless Steel. A secret paste painted with brushes and burnt into the metal at over 1,000 degrees. All with a hand-held torch spitting fire like a dragon.
Gifted with dyslexia, Milo took a hands-on route to education. Training under old timer master crafstmen, he learned to be a crafstman. He also learned to be an artist, although he gave himself much resistance. He now wears the artist label with pride.
