Timothy Michael Hetland is a 3rd generation Norwegian descending from Kragerø, Norway. Through his metal artworks he defines the fine balance and beauty of metal, wood, crystal and stone to create everlasting interior and exterior sculptures. The raw metal materials and ocean washed stone used are made to last for centuries and are of high grade metals and alloys including aluminum, stainless steel, copper and bronze.

Mr. Hetland will discuss the general process behind development of his works, including sketching and research, as well as discussing and demonstrating some of the metal and stone-working techniques.
