One of my other addictions besides blacksmithing is all that is rusty. I think rust looks great! There are sooooo many different shades of ocher and sienna and lovely reds and browns, its like the blood of the earth. Any time I see something with a good coating of rust all I can think is, “oh, how can I use that?”

First of nature based metal sculptures, this one inspired the many that came after it.

I love color, in fact I never met a color I didn't like for some reason. Here is a piece that is a part of a series I did for the joy of it using some junk found around the studio. I picked pieces and, like a stone mason making a dry wall, I "listened" to what the pieces told me to do. It was all very intuitive and, in the end, harmonious as well.

This is what I've done with some of the leftovers from my "Hand" sculpture. It's 10" high. I've taken parts of the typewriter I used ($15 at a swap meet) and put together little things. I call them cubicle art. When I worked in a cubicle, I liked little things to decorate my office that made me smile.

This is a recent sculpture I've done. I started back into art a year ago, after too long of a hiatus. I've taken welding classes but still gone back to brazing and ocy/acetelyne.
My work has started to encompass a lot of recycled metal that I've "rescued" from dumpsters. Haven't gotten arrested yet, but have lots of good metal to work from.
