Whimsy & The Welder is a creative duo that specializes in metal and art glass sculpture and design. These busy folks also run Art on Main in Pittston representing the work of over 50 regional and national artists, as well as organize the visual artists for Pittston 2nd Friday Artwork. We’re excited to have them at Arts on the Square!
Tell us a little about Whimsy & The Welder.
Whimsy & The Welder is a metal and art glass studio specializing in indoor/outdoor decor : metal, glass, and recycled objects. Maria and Bill’s work can be found in stores and galleries across the US and Canada and have several pieces in private collections here and abroad.
I read that you are are primarily self taught and a two-person team. Does each of you have different specialties?
Bill Zack and I are primarily self-taught. I specialize in glass (fused, stained, sandblasted) and metal plasma-cutting. Bill specializes in welding. We collaborate on the design portion.
What types of work will you be featuring at Arts on the Square?
We will be featuring our glass fish, glass flowers, window/wall jewels, and some glass/metal pieces.
Do you you have a favorite piece ?
We always say “it’s the one waiting to be born”.
The art scene in Pittston is really happening these days and I see you’re a big part of it with Art on Main. What do you guys have going on there?
Art on Main in Pittston is located at 71 S Main St, Pittston. Along with our work, we also represent the work of over 50 PA and national artists. We have classes in stained glass, taught by Tammy’s Stained Glass Treasures. Tammy will also be at Arts on the Square this year. I also organize the visual artist end of our Pittston 2nd Friday Artwalk, which we have 4 times a year…May, June, July and September.
Is there anything else you want our readers to know?
Bill & I are currently working on some public art projects, one of which is an outdoor sculpture for Geisinger.
