Thirty years ago, I created my first 3-D wire sculptures and mobiles from coat hangers. I soon switched to brass rods (which didn’t rust) creating musical instruments that wiggled and bounced. In the late 1990s, I developed an original method to attach stained glass, geodes, glass “blobs” and other objects to my moving brass sculptures. The result is a strong, light, colorful, weatherproof yet kinetic 3-D sculpture. I also revel in bent glass, slumping sheets of stained glass in a homemade electric kiln, over a hand-crafted mold or ceramic form.
For the past ten years (or more?) I’ve been invited to between 10 and 20 juried art shows every year. Many are in the Southeast, but I have a little group of favorite shows in the Midwest as well. Once, I got to go the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Super.
My dream is to ramp up my current work and make it huge. I really want to make a big impression. Sometimes it seems only artists that do giant work get noticed. I want people to look at my work and feel sheer joy, and I want them to think “wow, how did you do this?”
