Morph XIV

Morph XIV

Morph XIV takes elements from my previous works and becomes a cantilevered, curl-over wood sculpture, as well as a mobius. Unbeknownst to me at the time, it would be part of my inspiration for one of my future glass sculptures, Ode to Morph.

Morph IX

Morph IX

Morph IX : The question was “How far can I push the limits, especially in Cherry?”

Morph VIII

Morph VIII

Morph VIII : Everything about this piece was just plain nuts. It’s one thing to make a curl-over, but to do one that is also on a curve?

Morph VII

Morph VII

Slender, open front curl and up-swept spire makes a real statement for the size of this Black Cherry wood sculpture. I borrowed some lines from two previous sculptures in the Morph Series…but since it’s my work, I do not feel guilty of plagiarism. You decide.

Morph VII | 1’- 2” h, 7” w, 5”d | Black Cherry | Inquire.

Morph VI

Morph VI

Morph VI : The lines, movement and proportions just worked so well together. This was another difficult piece to visualize and execute. A real fun challenge.

Amphora

Amphora

Amphora : With Amphora the form of the raw material, with all its distress, reminded me of an ancient Greco-Roman vessel and inspired the name.

Cherry Twist

Cherry Twist

Cherry Twist : Is the beginning point of my exploration into fractal geometry. Like so many artists before me, I am intrigued and inspired by science. Today we are blessed with a rich array of possibilities ranging from mathematics and physics to cosmology.

Call of the Wild

Flug Ober Muotatal

Flug Ober Muotatal

Flug Ober Muotatal : The negative space nearly equals the positive. My intention was to give an overall sense of flight, using the upswept delta, as if a bird was standing with its wings raised upward.
