"One-of-a-kind bronze constructions are welded, forged, machined and oxidized with hot process patinas. The process has evolved in my 35 year dialogue with materials, and I have learned when to impose my will and when to listen. I want my pieces to look "made" and to retain evidence of my hand and thought. Working in series creates a slowly accumulating momentum, wearing away the non-essential to reveal what is authentic to a personal and particular aesthetic. Antique beads are collected and used as found objects in still life."
