Default Ep 22 | The Red Mist | Ferrari Inspired Art + Sculpture w/ Tony Lauro

On Episode 22 of the "Sheet Metal Shaping Podcast" we have artist, collector, and Ferrari aficionado Tony Lauro from Palm Beach, Florida

In this episode we chat about creating exotic automotive sculpture, and what happens behind the scenes to produce this type of work.

We also discuss:
- Automotive design at the Cleveland institute of art
- Collector of old school metal shaping videos
- What better way to practice metal shaping than scaling down, ¼ scale projects
- Mixing hobby, art, and business, with collectors

- The “Red Mist” romance at a concourse d’elegance
- Talking about @cavallinoclassic Cavallino Classic car show in Florida
- Working so hard, to have all this “stuff”, but having no time to use it
- Getting hired by someone to finish a 1959 TR replica in a 13,400sf shop
- Chip Foose “the biggest compliment is when someone knows you’ve modified the car, and can’t quite pinpoint what you’ve done. It’s so subtle, and makes the biggest difference”

- Creating models in CAD, and utilizing 3D scanning
- Scanning an original 250 GTO
- Standing out as an artist, and what is the market like for automotive sculpture?
- Build art that inspires you, and the buyers will sense your passion
- Push your boundaries on your art, some will fail and some will hit
- 250GTO coffee table, and putting it on Bring a Trailer, and documenting the build

- It’s no longer boastful to showcase your work on social media. It’s the expectation.
- Being isolated, as an artist, and how online communities help that
