Jim Dehne bends, curves, and welds iron to sculpt finely twisting lifelike pieces. The sculptures are displayed and sold at shows. The last several years Jim has been showing mainly at horse shows including large horse shows in Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Arizona, Texas, and Colorado. Lots of time is spent getting pieces organized and loading the trailer. Jim enjoys the whole show atmosphere: arriving early in the morning at shows, unloading the trailer, meeting new people, and seeing who is back this year.

We have five videos that are all here on the website homepage.
