  • Moses and his small workshop of craftsmen build their own welding machines out of copper coil, tape, steel rod, and a sheet metal housing in order to create these spectacular, metal works of art. Moses began his artistic career making furniture, but quickly switched to sculpture after an interested European buyer created a demand for his works abroad.

  • Baby oil drum sculptures are shipped in an oversized box and generally do not require additional shipping. If extra shipping fees are required, we will let you know.

    These small sculptures are often combined on pallets with larger oil drum sculptures. Pallets can hold multiple sculptures without incurring extra fees. Shipping for a pallet starts at $150. Please email us at with any questions.
