full time metal fabricator/artist

Continuing chicken head fabrication

My clients restaurant is about to open and they are ready for me to shift gears back into making art! This is the reason I make all the tables and other metal projects, so I can make art.
Ironically I don’t enjoy being labeled as an artist, I prefer artisan, art can be anything, popsicle sticks glued together haphazardly can make beautiful art, in an artists hands, artisanship however requires a clear indication that something was intentionally crafted together, the results can be art and sometimes look as haphazard as the popsicle sticks, but the core of the project must show some fundamental understanding of the materials being used.

While this picture doesn’t look like much, it’s the beginning of something awesome I’m making that’s going to be on a main thorough-way in North Portland, mounted on the rooftop of a rotisserie house that’s about to open its doors called, “The Coop”, in a few short weeks, I’m going to finish making this sculpture and install it for all to see!
