Welding Student Creates Life-Size Art

Western Nevada College student Austin Lambert has combined his welding skills with his artistic talents to create an award-winning sculpture. Now, his work has found a permanent home outside the WNC Andy Butti Welding Technology Center.

"The Archer,” a life-size sculpture of a man pulling back a bow, took first place in the ceramics and sculpture category during the college’s 2013 student art show in Carson City.

Lambert originally welded a smaller version of the sculpture while attending Douglas High School in Minden, then created the life-size tin version in his welding class during the spring semester. Lambert said he was inspired to create a larger rendition to display outside the Welding Technology Center, offering it a signature piece of art.

“I like the way it turned out,” said Lambert. “I take to the rustic side of art. I like the Medieval (period).”
