Stunning Welding Art By 23-Year-Old Welder From Chicago


Richard Lauth loves to weld. The 23-year-old Chicago resident is a welder-artist and Local 150 ASIP Operating Engineer that has a talent for working with metal: his creative work includes abstract and themed sculpture, decorations, and models.


Forge welding has existed since the Bronze Age, although the Greek historian Herodotus states that Glaucus of Chios “was the man who single-handedly invented iron welding” in the 5th century BCE. Scientific advances in the early 19th century lead to the invention of arc welding in 1881-82.
