Artist’s Statement: The manipulation of steel got into my blood in a welding class in high school. Since that time I have morphed from ship fitter millwright and machinist to designer. Metal has been the path that guided me to where I am today. I enjoy collaborating with clients by forging my impressions of their personal vision to create both functional and ornamental works. Commissions have included gates trellises garden art umbrella stands mirror frames and bracelets. I am fascinated by the processes of shaping metal into three-dimensional ornamental objects. The permanence of forged steel saves me from the insanity of the throw away culture we live in now.
