    Welded Celtic knot

    Welded Celtic knot. No idea of the background here, or if this is CNC welding, or something else.

    I agree it is cool looking. and the artisan who did this had a lot of patience If you look real close you will see that this is tig welding you can tell by the puddle stops.
    It would have taken some time just to layout the general design then the mighty question would be where to stat. The most obvious start point would be one of the center lines since all of the puddle stops points are covered on the center straight lines.
    I doubt if this would have been done by a robot CNC as some of the curves show to be slightly misshapen also a few of the beads are not perfectly uniform in width.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Yeap, looks like manual TIG to me too. You can see where he stopped and grabbed another filler rod and started again.

    Absolutely beautiful, about as close to a work of art an artisan can get to.

    I still haven't been able to find any more background. I did find that this type of work is characterized as "tig art", and this process is technically known as "hardfacing" or "hardsurfacing".

    There's also a now-deleted arronexus Instagram account with tig art, and you can pinterest around for "tig art" to find more examples. However, the ones I saw, though interesting, were not of this same weld quality.
