He chose the name because of the winds, said his daughter, Tracy Beach, also of Salida. Wagner came to Colorado in the 1970s with the aim of opening his own foundry. He did that and then started doing his own art. He just switched gears when he moved to Colorado, said Rodd Wagner.
He thought originally of making something to sell; he had never been to art school. But Wagners work has been shown around the country, and for decades he and his wife, Barbara, traveled in a van to art festivals, his son said. Carl Wagners work ranged from thimbles and 6-inch-high bronze mugs, or steins, to life-size buffalo, eagles and other birds. Two mugs wound up in the hands of Ronald Reagan when he was president. One of Wagners customers sent them to the president, and Reagan later sent him a note and a medal.Wagner did many commissioned pieces, all eagle statues, for American Airlines, Anheuser-Busch and the Federal Reserve Bank. The companies used them for awards. His works are in several parks. Thanks For Shopping With Us.
