Bill Weaver

Bill was raised in Iowa, and then spent his army time in Germany, followed by college and an apprenticeship with Edgar Britton in Colorado before settling in Santa Fe. Weaver works with sheets of metal in a very visceral method, pounding and pressing the metal until it takes on the life-imprint of the artist. He often uses classical reposé work in the metal, which is uncommon at this time. Weaver uses the reposé to create delicate patterns and detail which is interpreted as very contemporary because of the context of his work which is often an ironic reference to objective images.
