"Soritical Ties", 2015, 27"x18"x12", steel

When it comes to writing about my work I experience a certain reluctance. Words tend to define and nail down ideas and to quote Nietzsche "words make the uncommon common".

Soritical Shift, 29"x18"x9" steel

Green Samurai, 18 × 14 × 9 inches, bronze

My sculptures are objects of reflection and contemplation. The head that I employ in most of my work is generic, non-specific, gender-less, egg-like in form and intention. I look on them as a mirror which reflects back the observer's experience in new combinations and associations. The works are open ended with no didactic intent other than to see new possibilities.


I work in metal because I love the physical tactility of it and the processes involved in making a sculpture.
