Austin Weishel

 

Austin discovered sculpting after visiting his grandparents in Arizona, where they took him on a tour of a local bronze foundry. There, he was introduced to the process of casting clay sculptures into bronze. After several months, he returned to Arizona with a finished clay sculpture of a fireman.

 

Austin decided to sculpt first responders due to his interest in the police and fire services. In high school, he worked as a student firefighter for the Loveland Fire Department for nearly three years; he subsequently joined Loveland’s student police program. At 18 years of age, he successfully completed one of Colorado’s fire academies to become a firefighter. Soon after, Austin was a certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and continue to sculpt the fire services.

 

His transformation from small pieces to life-size works garnered his first commission with the Windsor-Severance Fire Protection District. He sculpted a life-size fireman, named “Follow Your Heart” at 19 years old. Today, he continues to combine his two passions for art and public service. His latest project, the National Fire Dog Memorial named “Ashes to Answers”, is a life-size fireman with an arson K-9. “Ashes to Answers” is located at Fire Station #2 in downtown Washington D.C. “Ashes to Answers” was commissioned by Jerry Means, an arson investigative agent with the Colorado Bureau of Investigations (CBI).
