I now passionately create my own sculpture, and my favorite subject matter is “life”. Wether it’s from nature or humanity I love the inherent energy of that which is alive. I’m particularly fond of the human form and all that can be expressed through it’s depiction. To reflect these subjects I often work with traditional methods and materials, but I am now concentrating on developing my own unique aesthetics and techniques.
One of my sculptural pursuits are my Garden Fish. My vision is to create a form that captures the essence of a fish, making it less literal, more abstract, yet still unmistakable. The intention is then for someone to place them amongst their landscape, as they school and interact with the environment. The fish are fabricated from steel, stainless steel, and bronze. I start my process by plasma, cutting out two fish shapes, form them into the two halves, weld them together, grind it clean, give it a finish and/or patina, then finally a clear coat to help protect it from the elements. I’ve created them to bring a serial sense of nature to our personal space and environment.
