For over 40 years, working metal into imagined shapes has been the artist Richard Starks fascination. All the sounds, the sparks, the flames, and the smells of metalworking are his spark to get started. Watching the molten puddle, while forming a new weld, is a hypnotic experience. A flame or arc, at five to ten thousand degrees, can't help but grab your attention. This sculpture is handcrafted and completely Tig welded and finished to look like a solid chunk of steel.
Both of Richard’s parents were music teachers. This sculpture is in their memory, and to the others who appreciate good music. Treble Clef is available for purchase for $4900.
