Legs sculpture with high heeled shoes. The legs including the shoes were 20 feet high and all metal.image



Just before more metal was added to fill in the toe and heel areas.image

Steel desks made from 1/8” plate welded.  A 3/4” channel was cut out to insert a piece of glass into the table. Desks were treated with a patina and sealed.

This is a 1/4” plate steel ring I created that is set into a sloped embankment bisected by a set of concrete stairs. I welded together 4 pieces of rolled plate on site using a jig I created to maintain an even curve. The ring will be left to rust and filled with plants.

A very short video of me shooting metal lights I created with a shotgun.

Outdoor lighting I designed and created for Concrete Bloom Bursts, an award winning installation designed by Victoria Taylor, a Toronto-based landscape architect (victoriataylor@sympatico.ca). I used corrugated steel roofing from a barn and formed them into 40” to 30” rectangles. I then used my shotgun to make holes in the metal to let the light I placed inside shine through. The installation contained 18 lights.

This is an eyeglasses store interior I clad with reclaimed hemlock in a radial pattern and a hot rolled steel and glass display case. The display case has a glass top with a front sliding door.

Recently I was asked to clad two fireplaces in black powder coated steel. They both needed updating and the metal gave them a cleaner look.

I took my metal saw to the scrapyard and removed several pieces of old panel vans. These were then formed into reclaimed metal panels. The metal has interesting wear patterns that reveal different layers of paint creating atmospheric landscapes.

Here I’ve created a bi-folding four panel metal gate. The atomic symbol was plasma cut from one inch plate steel and then cut into four pieces and placed within the panels. The atomic symbol used here came from a vintage screen print.

I made this sign for a downtown eyeglasses store out of hot rolled steel that I watermarked. The watermarking gave it an interesting pattern almost like a wood grain. I powder coated the sign using a clear coat that I had made up to give the metal a natural look as though it hadn’t been coated at all showing all of the characteristics of the original surface.
