Maker


I am a wire sculpture artist and teacher of my craft. I have been making wire sculpture with tin copper wire for over 30 years. Soldering skills are the key to my sculpture work. 30 years of working with heavy duty and very fine wire, enables me to make a wide range of wire sculptures from 14 gauge wire down to 36 gauge. With welding and many other fabrications skills I am able to make and teach a wide variety of sculptures in a wide variety of materials in fine detail.
