I tend to work in cycles, using metal, wood and clay, but always returning to welded metals (either stainless steel or aluminum). Most of my sculpture is in the hard-edge non-objective mode, but every so often the wish for humor evokes abstracted figurative work. With the exception of bronze casting, I have in the past preferred to do all the actual construction myself. I find that the feel of the material and the handling of tools is as much a part of the joy of sculpture as the originating of ideas. But one grows older, and, in more recent years, I have used the assistance of foundries in the fabricating of works over 6 feet in size.
