New Work for the Garden

Aluminum Bell with Stainless Accents

I love the details in this sculpture. I used various objects from my years of collecting. It was created using a fire extinguisher, laser cut drop, chain, square washer, vintage twist drill wood handle, stainless steel cable, plow disc and plumbing from my bathroom remodel. – 24″ W x 64″ H

Whirling Orb

I enjoy the variety of materials used to create this piece. There are found objects, plasma cut and laser cut strips of steel. It helps to add interest and texture to the whirling mass. – 40″W, 56″H on stand

Off Circle Orb

This is a one-of-a-kind garden orb. I found a laser cur drop and cut it up to create the sphere. I look forward to creating more by recreating the laser shapes and duplicating the process. – 30″W, 46″H on stand.

MISTtreefullsm This Misty Tree came about through a discussion with Kelley about a way to display her collection of glass ornaments outside her window. She liked the Mist trellis but wanted it in the round. The orbs can be hung in one of the five large hoops or off one of the spirals that punctuate the piece. I made enough antiqued copper hooks that she won’t run out as her collections grows. 7’H x 2’W

I’m really enjoying these organic nesty objects. Here is the orb (20″ H) and the egg (27″ H x 19″ W). It’s the perfect use for the tangled strap I find at the steel yard. I can take advantage of the distortion to create unique outcomes. I add all widths and thicknesses into the object so it feels like all the random twigs a bird may collect for a nest.
