Whiskey_Iron2_2I am the founder and sole artist of KRLmetals.

I am also co-founder of Ironhead Sculptural Services.  We travel around the States with a portable foundry putting on molten metal events.

Kelly Ludeking: BFA Minneapolis College of Art & Design in Sculpture/ Furniture Design. I works as an independent contractor in all of the construction trades with a large emphasis in structural steel welding. Some of the projects I have worked on can still be seen in public (26’ diameter JVC globe in Times Square, NY.) My personal art is all about process and recycling – using cast iron radiators to melt down and create unique vessels. My most popular sculptures are welded found objects made mostly from machinery parts. I am also active in Chicago Sculpture International, a resource for sculptors around the world.
