My themes are generally of either familiar life forms from the places I have lived in or ones that would render themselves well as lamps. To make the sculptures large enough to get the important details of the actual life form, yet small enough to be easily manageable, is my goal. I often use a combination of copper foil stained glass technique with fused/slumped glass and fine frits, which allows me to get finer details or 3-D effect where solder and foil is impractical.
The only maintenance required, for whatever isn’t obviously intended for only indoors, is to take them inside if snow or excessive wind is in the forecast, and give them a new buffing of Turtle Wax to shine them back up when needed. Most repairs are simple and parts easily removable in case of accident or need to transport.
Special requests and commissions are welcome. Just give me the subject matter (color of sea creature, species of insect or plant for example) and any other specifications you need and I’ll do the rest.
All are signed, dated, and documented.
