The Alchemist Strikes Gold

Good things come to those who wait. The October issue of WNC Magazine just hit the stands and I am thrilled! Why you ask??? Each issue contains an Artist Profile and this month I'm the featured artist. Kiesa Kay, a true wordsmith, interviewed me earlier this year and wrote this outstanding article. Her partner, Joe Mulligan's, cool photos are included.

Captured Flight landed in Elmhurst at my daughter's newly renovated home. Joyce and I were happy to see my sculpture hanging front and center in their living room. Jen, Jake and our grandchildren Hannah and Will were thrilled with our house warming gift.

This enthusiastic comment from a client on Cape Cod brought a BIG smile to my face! Creating a coffee table using my designs and her vision moved me into a new territory of functional art. The pictures tell the story. The set below is before being powdercoated bronze; above is the completed table in her home.
