I look to join a strong sense of design with objects that are functional. I use lines and masses to create both motion and balance. Much of my imagery is tied to my background in ceramics and landscape design. My work is often a blend of three-dimensional and two-dimensional aspects. My primary material is Steel. I work up my designs on paper and make stencils of the design so that I can cut out the steel pieces for the work. These are welded together and finished of by various sanding techniques - I dislike and avoid highly reflective finishes. After the work is welded together I use various treatments to bring color to the surface of the work. To protect the finish of the work a coat of Penetrol is applied to the surface followed by several applications of an acrylic clear coat.
