My artwork explores the boundary between sculpture and sustainable design. The objects I create range from benches and other site furnishings to human-scaled biomorphic sculptures. My aesthetic is modern, abstract and organic, with a sense of whimsy.
My desire to work exclusively with used materials led me to develop a patented process to repurpose salvage propane tanks, a readily available source of pre-curved steel. My work is extremely eco-friendly from start to finish. I begin with regionally sourced scrap tanks, an abundant material due to strict regulations limiting their service life. I carefully dissect the tanks and reassemble the pieces, while doing no additional reshaping of the material. Repurposing has a dramatically smaller carbon footprint than recycling because the source material is reused in its current form. Upon completion each object I create contains 99% post consumer reused content. I believe my site furnishings are among the greenest available.
