My metal sculpture is created by fabrication it is built-up by assembling various pieces. This differs from casting pouring material into a mold. I usually work in stainless steel and bronze cutting, shaping and welding the parts together. I also at times enjoy including found objects such as bones, antlers, old machinery parts, rocks, driftwood, etc. This blend or juxtaposition of materials and objects gives me much visual joy and satisfaction.
My sculpture is usually of wildlife themes, or cut metal signage done by commission. I greatly enjoy working with clients who have a general idea of what kind of work they would like to have done for their home or office or community, who come to me to create that unique wall relief mural, custom-made sign or artwork for their gate, etc. This is why I prefer the additive welding fabrication process.
