Artwork in Steel



 Newest Designs: Wall Pieces

using mixed materials

First of a new series on display in NE Portland

This is my second venture into multi material design.   This piece combines two layers of steel against a wood background in a 2" thick hardwood frame.   Different layers of steel allow me to use differ colors and textures of steel.   The wood allows richness and contrast.   There is a possibility of thirteen separate pieces in this series.  Then inner flower are bases on on of the Field of flowers gate series.   Two are already spoken for. 

 Previous Work: three separate pieces

designed for mixed materials

My Goal

My original goal was to produce unique art that could be used in a landscape. These works can be either one of a kind or grouped in series. Shaped of steel, wood and glazing, these pieces are doorways for our imaginations and suggest a reality few rarely see.

Lately I have been exploring new and exciting materials and concepts. Once again these works of art suggest looking deeply into the things we see and experience every day.

So if you are looking for original artwork for your landscape or home or if you want a passage to an expanded universe, please explore with me.
