Ray Bellew is a metal artist from Tallassee, Alabama.
A welder by trade, Ray began to explore repurposing scrap metal into unique pieces of art after God revealed his purpose through a vision.
What started as making small objects from metal rings has developed into a diverse portfolio including landscapes, still life, and abstract pieces.
He loves to take discarded metal objects that most people consider trash and turn them into one of a kind works of art. He draws inspiration from his faith and takes great joy in displaying his interpretation of God’s handiwork through his craft.
