After graduating with a BFA in sculpture concentrating in clay modeling from life, I taught myself woodworking and more recently cold working of sheet metal. The common element in my current work is a hand carved wooden form to which I piece, dap, and nail or screw a closely fitted metal surface. I use tin, pewter, copper, rusted steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, bottle caps, and antique painted tins for the surface.
