Santa Cruz based sculptor, Steve Heaton dismantles old barrels and recreates realistic looking bicycles and occasionally other items that resonate with him in the moment. He makes a variety of designs such as road, mountain, cruiser and penny farthing and particularly loves collaborating on commissioned pieces personalizing and adding in special details.

The Sculptures are handmade entirely from a barrel except for a handful of screws and a couple of corks. It is his imagination, attention to the details, vision & creativity that bring these sculptures to life. Extremely unique, one of a kind pieces suitable for indoor or outdoor, hanging or stand alone.

The artist
Cycling has been both his passion and livelihood most of his life. He has ridden and raced competitively on both road and mountain bikes. Beginning as a mechanic in a bike shop as a teenager, he has gone from working for bicycle manufacturer's to consulting for bike companies, to coaching and fitting cyclists. 
He loves working with his hands, repurposing and creating new things from old. Early 2019 while looking at a barrel, he visualized a bicycle using only the metal hoops and wood staves. He dismantled the barrel, laid out the material on the floor, and a barrel bike sculpture was born.
