SPACE AGE ARTIFACTS

I began making sculpture as a kid, but I went into full-on production in 1987, when my father died. He called himself an antique dealer, but in reality he was a junk collector. My mother asked me to help remove the piles of metal that had accumulated over the years, and on the way to the dump I looked in the rear-view mirror and realized I was about to throw away a gold-mine. I began welding in earnest that summer, and have found that my father had a great eye! My sculptures have appeared around the world, and my “Stargate” is part of the permanent collection at The American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore.
