I'm really excited to be embarking on a new steel and glass commission. Technically, I am not starting it now because I have a few windows waiting to be installed and one that is almost ready for me to start building it. But I had a little gap in time while details were worked through on those so I jumped ahead and started playing around with the components for these wall sculptures. A few months ago, a friend gave me a bunch of rusty steel he had laying around. Then a few weeks ago, a client commissioned me to make her something for her newly renovated kitchen which felt too plain to her. She wanted two pieces that would hang on the walls, she was hoping they would incorporate some re-purposed materials, and she asked me to make them funky! Right away I thought of these two Asian woks from my friend. Fitting for a kitchen, they will provide the structure for some glass flowers which I will attache to curvy vines that will wrap into and out of the holes. I started cleaning them up and as soon as the rust came off, they looked gorgeous. It's going to be hard to set them off to the side in my studio while they wait their turn to become art. Stay tuned in the coming months for more updates on their progress.
