Crafting seemingly unexpected, unrelated natural and man made objects feels natural to me.
Sculpting gives me the opportunity to shape wood, metal, glass, and stone that magically materialize bits and pieces of me into visual art.
The process requires creative engineering to solve mechanical problems, from the machining and attachment of dissimilar materials to the movement of sails, and I enjoy that.
Whatever the sculpture, building movement and real motion into each piece is important to me because motion brings the magic- It transforms inanimate objects to lifelike forms, identifiable yet dreamy.
Making beautiful things out of functional objects makes me happy. Working a piece of wood that once lived proudly in the forest and carving it into a sail filled with wind makes it stand tall and come alive again. That turns me on.
