// Willie Hahn is a self-taught modern sculptor who primarily works with steel. His pieces play on shadows, organic shapes, and unique forms. He’s also a massage therapist, and does other contract work in his downtime as a commissioned artist. “I’ve always worked with my hands,” he says. Hahn has been fascinated by ancient artifacts and architectural wonders like the Great Pyramids since he was a young boy. “When we build something or we do something, how long is it really going to be around?” Hahn asks. In Hahn’s sculptures he's most satisfied with the outdoor pieces that patina and change colors due to oxidation, he says. But one of his most recent pieces hangs inside on the wall of the new U-M School of Information student affairs office that opened last year. Healthy living is another big part of Hahn’s lifestyle; he hasn’t eaten meat since 1982, and you can also find some of his sculptures at Cacao Tree and Inn Season — two vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Royal Oak. 248-807-2436
