Spring Forward

I'm not in love with daylight saving time, the switching forth and back of clocks just as your eye and psyche adapt to the light and hour, but I can "spring ahead" with the best of you.

In the world of metal there is much springing. A remarkable collection of elements soft, hard, malleable and more. Metal conducts, it carries, it upholds, it fastens and bridges, and even biologically sustains. Too much or too little iron in our bodies will eliminate the spring in our step. I have a love of the material and a long kinship with the workers of metal: sculptors, engineers, scrappers and inventors. I co-own, with John Daniel Walters, a business named METAL. We are a design and fabrication studio and a gallery. We produce sculptural, utilitarian, and mechanical forms using digital and traditional processes. We re-purpose and reclaim objects, and design and produce with an eye on the beauty and longevity of the object. We marry functionality and splendor, and explore the inventiveness that is our human inclination.
