Doug Makemson


Doug Makemson creates his creatures from scrap steel, and other mixed metals. He writes, “The challenge is to create sculptures that seem alive through implied motion. A cocked head, open mouth, asymmetrical stance—all work to forge the personality of the finished animal or figure. The character of the raw material is maintained in the finished piece, as one gets closer the parts become recognizable as more or less familiar objects from our industrial culture.” Doug lives in Nicholson, GA.
