It’s rare that I ever use new, clean, perfect steel and materials. Whether it’s the character of used, pitted, nicked, scratched, weathered, bent, worn and mangled steel, or, some old copper pipes, a copper roof shingle, or, an antique barn joist, post or any other old piece of wood, to breathe both life and purpose back into these materials and give them some design and beauty, is very satisfying.
Sometimes I may use water jets, laser cutters, or other modern technology, but I prefer handheld tools, they seem to give me a more intimate relationship with the materials I'm working with. A literal hands-on approach leads to a more truly handmade one-of-kind look vs. an all too common technology based machined look. I’m constantly trying to reinvent how I approach making visuals, assembling shapes, and creating art, with whatever materials I may have at that particular time.
