I choose Stainless Steel to make metal sculptures because it is a green material that can be transformed into natural subjects of nature by using material, which would have been recycled. Using old world techniques of the Silver Guild, traditional hand forming is applied to achieve exquisite texture and relief shapes that move the alloy. With a painterly style, translucent acrylics are blended in progressive layers to emit luminance of the metal forming techniques.

New Dimension of Clematis
Working with others on the "Clematis" has proven to be worthy in my development work. The sculpture was expanded with a new backing in Stainless Steel that added depth to the original master.
The Rivers Edge in Wyandotte, Mi displays the Sculpture and the has been getting positive review of the art. This wall mounted Sculpture measures 33 inches wide by 44 inches high.
