Mirror polish stainless steel is hand formed into captivating designs inspired by the ocean waves. His stunning work reflects light, shape and formed radiance. The result Is quite Fascinating. The glimmer of ocean waves reflects itself in the hand worked steel as it now is transferred on to the observer. The shapes and surfaces Illuminating the room attest to the mastery of art, form and design. The work conveys movement from all angles and provides a unique abstract fusion that reaches beyond the ordinary.

At the Keys for over 50 years…” to Express the Art of Music Design.” A composer should never put limitation on himself by achieving in one genre of music and say, “that’s it, I’m satisfied,” but should have freedom of expression in all there is…like the billions of stars, I am a “GALAXY BEING,” – no more, no less.

Artist Statement

Artist Statement: I am a self taught sculptor artist with over 20 years of experience working in a sheet metal shop. Having mastered the skill of metal fabrication and being inspired by the ocean waves, WAVEform was born….a striking design concept. Fusing abstract elements, mirror polish stainless steel is hand shaped into a one of a kind wondrous design. WAVEform creates stunning design spaces that can be introduced into a wide variety of modern environments. Each hand formed sculpture finishes with resemblance but never identical, mirroring the beauty of the waves themselves! My work has been called ”striking” ”exquisite” ”mysterious” ”stunning” ”compelling” ”unexpected” ”lovely” ”stellar” even ” unbelievably cool!” I am thrilled to work with individuals, art curators, interior designers, and architects, to develop cutting edge site specific design installations. I look forward to beginning a project with you!
