In late 2007 I started to play around with different chemicals to see what patina colors I could get out of the copper. In July 2008 I started to cut those practice pieces into strips and weave them together. The joy I get from turning scrap that had no value except to be recycled into beautiful sculptures is indescribable.
In July I was asked by the Springville Art Museum to become a part of the Permanent Collection in the new Sculpture Garden.
I have had my pieces described as organic, alive and energetic. Most people quickly notice the sense of movement found in them. I find it interesting that a guy who thinks this far outside the box makes wall art that looks more like a sculpture and does not use a frame. I name my pieces simply by when they are finished. Each piece just gets the next even number. By naming each piece this way you are able to be part of an ongoing creative process. Since the name is just a number I have left you free to see anything you want in the piece. Feel free to give your piece its own name; many of my clients have done that. I am so glad you enjoyed my art enough to take the time to read my statement, making these sculptures brings me great pleasure. It gives me even more pleasure to know others also find it as beautiful as I do.
