As any kid will attest it’s monumentally fun to stack blocks as high as possible before they fall. It’s also completely irresistible to not knock them over.

About the Artist

"Sculpture is my thing. I appreciate all forms of art but working in three dimensions appeals to me in so many ways. I have gravitated to public art. It's really the ultimate showcase for my work -- it's out there for all the world to see and love or not.

My specific focus is on welded steel, copper, brass, and aluminum. I often combine that with stone, wood, and now also ceramic and glass. Depending on the preference of the piece, I will go with natural patinas but also seriously love color. I’ve always been fascinated with the East and have chosen to experiment with techniques and concepts originating there, such as wabi-sabi. For me, wabi-sabi is the acceptance of beauty infused by the inflection as a reflection of our lives and loves."
