I got an idea to do a butterfly bush and liked the steel and glass creatures so much that I made a small wind spinner with more butterflys. They are really pretty turning in the wind. Lin

Totem is the newest in my steam punkish series. I am really having fun playing with objects from the recycle yard.

I have been making pieces for an upcoming show and decided to go in a new direction and use gears from a recycle place I found. I was inspired by seeing a steam punk collection. Along the way I learned it is tricky to weld used car parts!

Molten Relic

This found object sculpture was inspired by a mountaineer's ice axe, the "head" is a sickle bar mower guard that is "lashed" to the bar with some cable. I welded the cable to the bar and then texturized the hex shaft with what looks somewhat like metal candle wax.
