Big Ball: In Progress

Much of my work is about learning, refining, and testing new skills. I love the process of building and making each piece. Much like a baker or a musician, it is the repetitious act of creating the work that I enjoy, and the final outcome from all that practice is something I can share with others. For Big Ball I wanted to head into uncharted territory. This piece is 8 feet tall and will be cast in iron. While most of my work is a scale that can be held in your arms, I have always dreamed big. The monumental scale of this work and the monumental task of casting this piece in iron will allow me to test my skills, but also learn something entirely new.
