In 1992 during my first year of art foundry work we had an accident that splashed 40lbs of bronze onto the sand covered concrete floor. After the bronze cooled I was first surprised and then in awe that the splashed metal was all in one piece and a dynamic form. I instantly saw a connection with this form and the Hubble Telescope photos that were just beginning to ‘wow’ the entire world. Since then I have experimented with metal playing with casting techniques and other metal forming processes as well as developing skills in fabrication. As an art foundry man I have enjoyed the influence of many artists and enjoyed hearing how they approach their work both philosophically and workshop practices. My desire for any viewer of my work is to leave an experience much like one would experience a piece of music or enjoy watching a ballet. Fluid movement and kinetic energy are part of many things I love doing in life and my hope is to impart some of that passion into anyone who views my work.
