Tom Prohl

Tom Prohl, a custom home builder for about 30 years, aptly names his new found welding art, "Second Chance".  He believes he was given the second chance (or more specifically, the opportunity) in retirement to use his artistic gifts exploring metal rather than wood.    

An avid learner, Tom pursues the creation and complexities of sculpting with metal through welding coursework at the Northeast Technical College in Sturgeon Bay.  Tom describes welding as a unique medium - solid...yet flowing, permanent...yet constantly changing as the outdoor pieces weather from season to season.
