Mountain Artworks Studio Where Metal Art Meets West Virginia's Wild Spirit
Founded in 1996, Mountain Artworks Studio: AKA Michael "Goose" Sizemore provides beautiful metal art and custom metal sculpture. The artist's fascination for the Anasazi pictographs, petroglyphs and American Southwest is evident in his creative works. These range from small copper wallhangings to monumental sculptures. The linear elements of those ancient designs as well as my love of the organic world are two major themes in all of my art. I conceptualize in dreams, engineer on paper, and produce in the welding shop.
