Scott Wentzka began sculpting in 2001, but only began publicly showing his work in 2014. While stone, bronze and clay are the traditional media for a sculptor, Scott's work focuses on wood, metal and found objects combined in atypical compositions. Scott's work has a strong emphasis on structure and form, often with tension and motion incorporated into the forms.

While Scott loves to talk about his work, he can be miserly discussing his techniques, many of which are unique. It is not uncommon for a single work to contain more than a dozen distinct techniques from woodworking, metalworking, clay, paper, plaster, ink and paint. Regardless of the materials employed, he always has an eye on the long-term structural integrity and durability of his work. He once put 10 coats of polyurethane inside of a found wooden stump to provide an archival environment for the outer work.

Scott does not work from sketches or maquettes (miniature models of the final piece). Instead, he typically sees an entire work in its complete form in his minds eye and then find or invents the necessary materials and techniques to bring that vision to physical form. As his work has moved into progressively larger forms, his approach and techniques have not changed. That can mean keeping a cohesive vision for a work and all of the steps necessary for construction in memory for months at a time.
