I’m a collector of many things and in fact my wife sometimes expresses concerns that I can become a hoarder. In my travels I love to find things of metal with history at their core. You could call them simply objects, I call them inventory. The wall jewelry series gets its name from their presentation. Simply put, they are meant to be hung on a wall to bring some interest to an otherwise blank, uninteresting space.
Assemblages at their core, I employ the use of welding and forging to change the original components character. They are a little more than exercises in design and are a fun and rewarding break from the laborious amount of work involved in fabrication of the totems and benches.
