Aside from doodling and drawing I have been busy sketching, designing, cutting templates and engineering a number of wildly crazy new sculptures. I’ve found fabricators here in California that I am looking forward to working with although I will always miss the fantastic guys in Florida that were stellar in their work!
Aluminum plate and mild steel are my preferred metals for these pieces. The thickness of the plate ranges from 1/4″ to 1/2″ depending on the application. Each design is drawn in detail then loaded into the computer that directs the water jet to precisely cut it.
The metal pieces are carefully smoothed and any necessary welding fabrication is completed at this stage.
The brillant color is achieved after the metal is washed, powder coated and top coated giving a lasting, very weather tolerant finish similar to your car’s finish.
Here are some of my newest crazy, colorful pieces…………..Click on them for more details…….

They can be a herd or a flock or simply the appearance of one or maybe two.
Separate or together these feathered friends are quite an ensemble.
