Colorado Artist Don DeMott 

                                   Tipi Sculptures of Copper and Steel 

   Using welding torches and a Mig welder Don sculpts the frame of the tipi from Steel, then fashions the tipis skin from copper. Each tipi is then hand painted using a technique transforming the smooth copper into what appears 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.
