WINE LOVE

From the Artist's Statement:

"For more than 50 years, working metal into imagined shapes has been my fascination.  All the sounds, the sparks, the flames, and the smells of metalworking were my inspiration to get started.  Watching the molten puddle while I form a new weld is a hypnotic experience for me.  A flame or arc around five or ten thousand degrees can’t help but grab your attention. 

All my work is TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welded because of its quality and strength – it’s the best. Many artists teach themselves how to weld; I learned by taking many classes in high school and college.  I’ve also worked as a welder and metal fabricator for many years.  All these experiences have heightened my ability to shape and weld the forms I imagine."
