Rick Cunningham


Sculptor Rick Cunningham, a native Texan, was born in Ranger, Texas in 1952. 

At the age of sixteen, Rick took a job at a structural iron and steel mill in Lubbock, Texas.  Rick taught himself the basics of welding and spent the next five years experimenting in the different fields and types of welding.  At twenty one, he achieved his goal of becoming a certified pipe welder. 

He soon found himself teaching pipe welding classes at Texas State Technical Institute in Amarillo, Texas.  When time permitted, which wasn’t often, Rick began experimenting with steel sculpting.  With no real art background, Rick took the skills he had accumulated over the years and simply began creating.  He soon learned he had a real talent.

Rick sold his first sculpture, “Freedom”, an American bald eagle, hand forged welded steel in 2001. One of Rick’s ambitions in life is to achieve perfection at least once in his lifetime – learning to accept the fact that he will never achieve perfection!
