Haynie Daniel B

​Daniel Haynie Biography
I started making welded metal sculpture in 1977, it was a hobby until 1999 when I began to sell my work in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
My art education consist of a High School art course and design, drawing and art history courses at Texas Tech University. I learned to weld in a welding course at Lubbock Christian College (now University). My real school where I learned to make things was in manufacturing, making cotton gin parts, farm implements, piling for bridges, pump jacks, fences, et cetera. Working in welding jobs I learned to cut, bend, break, grind and roll metal, I learned the process of constructing and shaping metal to a purpose.
I work in stainless steel, steel, aluminum, copper, silicon bronze. I make kinetic sculpture, abstract sculpture, liner negative space sculpture. dhaysculpture@gmail.com
