Sculpture: Metal, Wood on Steel, Wood.
Formal design principles are the basis for my work which is typically made of wood and metal. Taken
individually the contrast between these materials can be dramatic but when combined and manipulated
they can transform each other from the utilitarian to the aesthetic. I re-purpose materials whenever
possible, the wood I use is from trees that have come down in storms or by some other natural event.
A firm believer in evolution, I allow each piece to change as work progresses always starting with a loose
sketch which rarely resembles the finished piece.
It's important to me that my sculpture is not highly polished or over-worked. I want people to see
evidence of artistic intent and restraint or put simply--knowing when to stop.
