Medium: metal | stone
I create my work using some of the most durable of materials – stone and metal. I use these enduring materials to create a connection with the viewer by evoking a sense of recognition and permanence. Beauty, classic form, design, as well as a dedication to precision, are essential to achieving this goal. I control as many factors as possible before I begin sculpting, but as each work progresses, unpredictable elements may appear and are incorporated in context. Often, these elements enhance my work in unexpected ways – the merging of nature with my designs creates my best work.
