Artists Statement:

I am driven by the challenge to turn hard, cold metal into something that appears soft and supple. I choose subjects that beg for detailed embellishments such as hand-forged scrolls and curves. My goal for the welded cold steel is to make it appear soft, bendable and touchable. The sculptures have delicate details that are forged by hand through the art of Blacksmithing and added to every piece as eye candy. The fluidity and softness of steel comes alive when it's been heated to 2000 degrees.
