Self-Portrait with Ruth

Bronze and Found Objects

Lost-wax cast bronze with cubic zirconia (to be replaced with diamond someday) and miniature light fixture.
The "Doorknob" series is comprised of (arguably tongue-in-cheek) variations on a spherical doorknob donated by Gene Verschelde. This model has been used in part in over 35 sculptures, some are social commentary, others are purely formal, in both lost-wax and found-texture castings.
