Kelly Ludeking

Kelly Ludeking and his wife Diane
Kelly graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design (MCAD) in 1997 with a BFA in Sculpture and Furniture Design. At MCAD, he was introduced to the feral fires of iron casting and the precision of fine furniture crafting. Ludeking has participated in, facilitated and hosted, hundreds of iron pours since his time at MCAD. In 2008 he co-founded Ironhead Sculptural Services, LLC, a traveling iron foundry that shares the art and appreciation of cast iron sculpture and performances with the local community. KRL metals is his personal artist business where he explores intimate creative processes from mold-making to molten mayhem to masterpieces. He also teaches welding to garden sculpture aficionados, hosts aluminum medallion pours for family reunions and corporate events, and co-creates with visionaries to manifest their ideas.
