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.

These jack stands were donated by a friend who wanted me to transform them into something new. “Surprise me, make anything”, she said.

They bring back fond memories of camping with her grandfather since they were used to set the camper on for every summer family camping trip.

The vinatge label reads ‘Camper Jack: Grants Pass, Oregon’.

The steel top is trimmed with stainless cable.

custom flower project

I just finished this commission for a client’s landscaped garden. This will sit into the ground a bit to hold a slope back. There is a mesh tray a few inches down for a layer of decorative rocks. The metal flowers are recycled from a christmas tree water basin, and a parts cabinet.
They provided the pot, I provided the color. Thanks for a fun project.
