Russell Whiting has developed a technique of carving steel with the oxyacetylene torch that produces complex surfaces and textures. Traditionally steel sculpture has been additive: poured, forged or fabricated. Torch carving is subtractive. The torch allows fast removal of material unlike any other method of carving, which allows for flow of thought and intent to be rapidly transferred to the medium.
