Copper, brass, aluminum, steel. With the application of different substances, a chemical activity is set in motion, changing the metal’s appearance. My “ingredients” might include: salt & water, vinegar, baking soda; products like bleach, muriatic acid or Comet cleanser; to other agents such as sawdust or commercially produced metal surfacers. For up to a week, I play cook and chemist, watching what happens. In the process, the metal acquires a patina that might include a range of colors and a seemingly infinite variety of patterns and visual textures. Instead of relying on a sketch, I establish an intuitive connection with the materials as I work with them. This process allows ideas to gradually evolve and change, as the metal is cut, bent, shaped and textured. It is an intimate process, both playful and challenging.
