In my current series of metal sculptures, most of the works are not planned out from their beginning to their conclusion; rather they develop as each piece of the sculpture is welded to the next piece. This intuitive way of working suits my creative approach and allow me to quickly change direction without looking forced or contrived. For the most part I use scrap metal because of sustainability and the bends and twists in the metal created by the recycling process. Most of the works are finished with high gloss enamel paint, while others with an industrial look are allowed to rust and then sealed with a matt finish.
