Steve Appel has been making ‘Bolt People’ in Long Beach, California since August 1989 when he was laid off from a job at the Long Beach Naval Shipyard. Animals were a favorite subject until one day he made a golfer. The golfer was the birth of the Bolt People.
Appel now lives in Prescott, AZ. It is there that he welds recycled nuts, bolts, steel balls and metal fasteners together to form people doing everyday life activities. The Bolt People include doctors, lawyers, construction workers, athletes, musicians, massage therapists, weight lifters, soldiers, and many others.
