Dog Bite Steel

Dog Bite photoJean Pierre Schoss, the wildly creative mind behind Dog Bite Steel works with the human form and images from nature. His work is created by recycling steel from oil tanks, farm implements or any found steel that is thick enough to be used. He cuts apart, heats and recreates the steel in order to orchestrate his ideas. Some pieces are forged and pounded into new forms. He also uses the scraps of steel that have fallen away from other works to build 3-dimensional sculpture. The result is a multi-colored form with images hiding within the form. It becomes the life of the old steel within the life of the first pieces within the life of the new piece.

    "Oil tanks are costly to cut up and recycle so the scrap yards don’t want them. I began using oil tanks, water tanks and propane tanks to save money because the steel was so expensive. I soon realized what I was doing. The recycling had become part of my life.

    The material has a lot of character and always tells a life story. It has a lot more to say than a big, expensive sheet of new grey steel. Some tanks have many layers and colors of paint on them from being painted over the years to match houses and cottages." - Jean Pierre Schoss, Dog Bite Steel

    On my last trip to Canada, I came across the work of Dog Bite Steel and became a fan. I love the quirky sense of humor found in each piece and wanted to share a smile with you.
