                                      Blackfoot Tipi's - Don DeMott
                                                  Welded from Copper and Steel  

  Using welding torches and a Mig welder Don sculpts the frame of the tipi from Steel, then fashions the tipi's skin from copper. Each tipi is then hand painted using a technique transforming the smooth copper into what looks like buffalo hide. A theme is picked to decorate the tipi based on the tribe's beliefs or simply from what they embraced in life.
