John Lopez, Western and Rodeo Theme Bronzes

Sculptor John Lopez (43), born and raised on a ranch in Western South Dakota, creates life-sized scrap metal sculptures with a uniquely Western American twist. In the midst of a successful career in bronze sculpting, he discovered an exciting new direction: scrap iron sculpting. In his hands, old discarded farm equipment is recycled into sculptures of iconic creatures from the American West like a bison, a horse plowing a field, or a Texas Longhorn. John is based in the town of Lemmon, South Dakota, in his widowed uncle Geno Hunt’s ranch.
