Christopher Weed, American Metal Sculptor

This gorgeous, eye-catching powder-coated steel beauty called Spore is the work of the very talented American sculptor, Christopher Weed. His work is very well-known in the American West, with pieces on display in Denver and throughout Colorado.  

I had the privilege of viewing this spectacular piece in person at the Museum of Art in Colorado Springs, Colorado in the spring.  This giant purple orb draws you to it, bringing to mind some fascinating scientific object... or maybe a squishy toy... or a kidney stone... or an alien spacecraft from Doctor Who, all at the same time.  Once you see a "Weed" in person, you never forget it.

Christopher was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He graduated from the University of Maryland and spent two years studying sculpture in Munich, Germany. He lives in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado where he is president of Christopher Weed, Inc.
