Concept to Completion

I am excited to have weighting accepted to the Western Cast Iron Conference show Concept to Completion in Scottsdale Arizona.  The show had over 110 entries and was juried by Mary Bates Neubauer and Wendy Raisanen.  This exhibition will take place during the 2016 5th Biennial Western Cast Iron Art Conference and will be on display in Scottsdale, Arizona in The Gallery@ the Civic Center Library.  The show runs October 3rd-December 31, 2016.

New work in process

I recently had the opportunity to work on a large scale in the realm of Iron casting when I participated in the 2015 National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art and Practices at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, AL.  It was a fantastic opportunity to make new work, and engage with some of the top artists, faculty, and foundrymen/women in the world who are working in iron.  Some images and video of the happenings from the week are below.  A huge thanks to all of my large mold workshop mates and the Sloss crew for helping me get a successful casting that approached 375lbs and was really clean.

“unhinged” traveling to Denver for Ice Breaker 6

After the small works exhibition in Philly, this little guy will be heading to Denver.  He was slated to meet his other two mates out there, but they will still be in TX at a show.  Exciting to get these pieces out to the public, the feedback has been positive.
