“The search for materials is one of the most enjoyable aspects of my metal sculpture art. A ranch’s rusted pile of twisted metal, old machinery parts, and forgotten tools are a treasure trove,” says Blide. With salvaged railroad spikes as his primary medium, Pat is able to transform the static into the dynamic, with whimsical characters coming to life.

Blide’s work is available for purchase through Riverside Studios, both in-store and on-line at You can also follow him on Instagram @wildhairwelding.
