ARTIST STATEMENT
Eluvium: the place of origin

My latest sculptures have combined glass with various metals, stone, and sometimes wood or found objects. I derive much of my inspiration from walking in and observing the garden, forest, bluffs and hills surrounding my home and studio. Sometimes other landscapes visited or environments experienced in other places inspire my work. Some of my works make statements about environmental concerns at the local, regional, or national level.

This direct relationship between environment and man is reflected in my work by application of heat, gravity, deposition, and erosion through the processes of hot, warm, and cold glass work. Metal work involves the processes of welding, fabricating, forging, and cutting. Stone work involves cutting, carving, and polishing. These ever evolving process, over a period of time create and reveal the inherent history within each unique piece. The artwork is abstract enough that viewers can bring their own experiences to the work and make their own interpretations about what the work is about. I see no need to replicate nature, but prefer to interpret and reimagine.
