sculptural assemblage from discarded materials


My work is primarily assembled from discarded, recycled, or salvaged materials — mostly metal — and many from a bygone era where I find an intrinsic beauty and style in their design and construction. I endeavor to invent a new existence for these abandoned objects, repurposing their streamlined or eclectic forms into unique pieces of art.

A single piece of ‘junk’ is often all it takes to inspire a project. Most of the components in the finished sculpture are recognizable and invoke curiosity, pleasure, and wonder for the viewer, which to my mind is part of the purpose and beauty of art.
