The solution of surviving on art is getting something which will generate an income. Or create carvings like Michael Moerkerk from keys and coins. Moerkerk, who is an Australian began with balls and spheres and advanced from there.
His present compilation consists of huge quantities of spheroids, wine glasses, key bottles, bowls and upper body of women. A lot of these lovely art pieces are present on his Etsy for sale.
Moerkerk states that he just attended soldering lessons for one day thirty years ago and his other expertise was attained through vast quantities of YouTube. He taught himself about working with wood and photography; however, he found out about working with metal by chance.
‘Recently, as I was clearing my shed, I found some aged copper pipe salvaged from a past refurbishment. I split it into rings and began creating spheres from it.’
