I create works from found objects, sea glass and metal mesh. Typically the subjects are aquatic fish and similar land critters. I have spent many hours in past scouring beaches for found sea glass, objects and anything else that might add interest. My method of creating is hand cutting various metal coiled rod to shape each outline then I use chicken wire or found meshes to form the bodies. I then wire up and attached the found objects and glass. The glass is a light catcher and brings each critter to life. I let each piece take its own form as I work the metal.
