Kinks #1

Artwork Tags:


Sticking to my theme of unconventional, hi-tech, hard-to-find materials, the "Kinks" series is made from carbon fiber tubes (once arrows), and brand new prosthetic implants, once destined for human hip sockets. This piece is for local, metro Detroit delivery, only.

I work with wire, but I could be most accurately described as a mesh artist, because I weave sections that can be worked like a soft textile or stiffened for heavier applications. The process I’ve developed is based on the principle of elegant efficiency, and results in something distinctly organic looking. My core methods are built around only a few simple rules laid out by the natural properties and physical limits of the wire, just as a potter works within the limits of the clay.
