My primary material is scrap sheet metal, from automobiles, appliances, signs, and other items. I collect materials from auto wrecking yards, metal scrap yards, and anywhere else an opportunity presents itself. I’ve been collecting sheet metal for over a decade and other objects for most of my life. I also like emblems and badges from bygone automobiles, appliances, and machinery. I like their message, detail, and thought for design. I take carefully selected bits of these worn and forgotten things to combine them as a cohesive whole.
