I live and work in the beautiful mountains south of Ashland, Oregon. I have been designing, creating, wholesaling and retailing metal sculpture throughout the Pacific Northwest for the last twenty years and currently offer my metal art in several locations.
I sculpt scenes of nature and fantasy from different gauges of sheet metal. My materials include copper, brass and chrome plated steel. Like drawing with the tip of a sharp flame, all my metal work is cut with an oxygen acetylene torch by hand. I then weld the layers together to create form and depth into each scene.
The texture in the pieces is created by hand, scored into the metal one line at a time. All the colors are natural and pulled out of the copper with slow strokes of heat from the torch. Finally, each piece is completed with a clear lacquer to preserve the colorful finish.
The nature of the materials and the fact that each piece is created by hand results in every creation being unique.
Thank you for your interest in my art,
