I have been in love with metal, metal tools, the processes of metalsmithing, and nearly anything and everything to do with this corner of the periodic table for nearly 35 years. It’s not just the technical end of knowing the characteristics such as the malleability or the tensile strength of a particular alloy, but it’s also the physical relationship and affinity you develop with the material. I enjoy every step of the process. Metalwork on the wall has an amazing capacity for detail and subtlety. The essence of my work is presenting the material and content with an inviting textural surface and 3-Dimensional details in rich, vibrant color.
