"Self Organization"

"Self Organization",
 aka, The octopus sculpture
Bronze, 3'x3', found typewriter
Currently available for sale, $20,000


The second in a series using antique typewriters mixed with metal sculpture, this 1921 Corona 3 portable typewriter has been transformed into a creature that is ready to express its creativity. Its steel wings are prepared to take flight, yet the sculpture's granite base binds it to the earth.

This new work is currently available for $10,000.  Please contact the artist for more information.

"Detroit City"

This sculpture refers to my complicated emotions concerning the fate of my hometown of Detroit and more widely, the climate and our environment. This bronze is plated with several metals, which has risen to the surface in a beautiful but toxic swirl.
