A native of Michigan, I first began producing dimensional art
in the early 1960’s in
Savannah, Georgia. My first works used wooden frames and strategically
I have been working with metals and an oxygen/acetylene torch.
some early pieces used such diverse materials as automobile
bumpers, the basic material
of my work for many years has been the common cut nail.
works integrate many other metals, such as copper, brass, steel,
silflow. The intense contrasts between the cold black steel
nails and the warm buffed-brass brazing are sometimes accentuated,
sometimes softened, by the natural colors of the integrated
metal pieces. My work is readily recognizable by the unique
combination of artistic design, geometric form, and the high
quality of braze.
