Sculpture

I am an upcycle/assemblage metal sculptor. I utilize items that have outlived their usefulness, scrap toasters, syrup pitchers, cocktail shakers, and various other bits and bobs that I have found at thrift stores, yard sales, antique stores or from my own personal collection.
I combine these various pieces with nuts and bolts or rivets. I enhance and improve the piece with paint and patina, epoxy clay, and lighting elements. I love building robots and other unique and whimsical creatures, many of which reflect a love of vintage Sci-Fi, Atompunk and Steampunk aesthetics.
