My sculpture invites participation: with people, and with the sun, shadows and alignments at different seasons of the year. The position of the sun, moon and stars creates a structure for me, like a painter might use a rectangle as a frame of reference.

Blacksmithing can transform iron from its raw state into a beautiful work - a very gratifying experience. I am inspired by organic forms that are found in the natural world. Art gives meaning to our lives, and while I enjoy producing traditional forms of ironwork, my greatest reward comes from creating my own abstract and functional designs.

My artwork explores the love-hate relationship our automobile consumerism forces us all to experience. My constructs are created from common objects that are combined to express a very personal view. I try to use recycled materials such as scavenged wood and glass.

There's an immediacy with blacksmithing that you don't have with other crafts. But I guess a lot of potters say the same thing. I appreciate putting together the four elements of earth, air, fire and water. You heat it up and hit it with a hammer. That's it.
