Welcome to Hand Bent Designs

Here you will be introduced to the steel sculptures of Chris Rider.

All of the artwork presented on this site has been formed by Chris, by hand, NO heat - NO tools, just Chris and a pair of work gloves to protect his hands.

Chris is available for gallery exhibits and personal appearances.

Thank you for visiting Hand Bent Designs!

Chris Sculpting by the Lake

With the lake as a backdrop, Chris hand bends a steel bar into the sculpture entitled "Calm". This piece captures the simple beauty of smoothly flowing continuous turns. A calming, peaceful design that was formed through much violence before ultimately finishing right were it began. This polished steel bar of 1/4" x 1" is then finished with a protective high gloss baked on coating.
