I make metal dance. I work in stainless, carbon, and cor-ten steel.  My process is exploratory – I sketch in 3D using thin aluminum cut with scissors and bent with my fingers.

Probing shapes, investigating their capacity to change, I consider the potential energy of my materials and try to lure out of them the dynamic forces of nature.

My work stands as a reminder of the connection between man and nature. While the metals I use are clearly man-made, the result of my collaboration with them is a blurring of the divide between nature and structure, space and form.
