I work in conversation with architecture.I make sculptures that attach to buildings or that are inspired by architectural elements. My work inhabits windows, columns, doors, ceilings and walls,and relies on structure to use as little material as possible. In these projects bending, curving, and folding are expressions that have developed a language and meaning beyond their structural economy.  At other scales I work in dialogue with cities, open space, and infrastructure--creating a cornice for a city block or a column for a pocket park path. Nature and natural forms often inspire my ideas.
