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.

"Crucible" is a found object assemblage sculpture that stands about 8" tall.


Slipper Tree

| | | | | |

This sculpture began with an odd piece of Maple firewood.The bark is crudely removed. The feet are (recycled)springs from an early snowmobile. They will be dress up to match the organic theme.They provide much movement and yet are stable.The plant is made from mild sheet steel(.032"). The leaves are stretched into a stump with a three pound sledge. I shrunk the edges back to a consistent line with a one pounder.Hit placement was my priority , and using the fewest hits. The leaves aren't typical orchid structures, but it was consistent with my "pick what I like and use that" theme.

Banana Leaf Sculpture

|

I just secured this commission over the holidays.It is designed for "Palm Square Sopping Center",so though it is site specific ,my clients knew before hand pretty much what they wanted, so there was little creative input on my part. Sometimes you just have to give people what they want,not necessarily what you think they need...This is one of those times.


Looking for the steel sculpture with shell casings

|

Last night a I ran across a photo of a steel sculpture with shell casings cascading down and some were frozen in mid air. Now I can't find what I was looking at. Does anyone know the blog or post that it was on? I found it interesting and would like to again read some of the posts that were there.
