I aspire to create sculpture that reflects a world filled with magic and wonder, celebrating the interrelated continuousness of all things through my Mobius-like works, with a single, traceable, looping edge. My works are produced through a method of direct carving, which entails having no preconceived notions or models from which to derive the final shape of my pieces. Instead, I allow the natural rhythms of the materials I use to guide me to a final product, rich with serene fluidity. During my 40-year-career, I have produced more than 1000 works in steel, bronze, wood, and water, though my curvilinear, Mobius-inspired stone sculptures are my most celebrated.
