Junkyard Chow

Junkyard Chow

 

Before blacksmithing, my sculptures
 centered around found objects usually
found in my home away from
 home - the world's greatest junkyard.
When time allows and the pieces
present themselves, I still make
junkyard sculptures.

American Steel

American Steel


Rusty was created in 1995 in a collaborative
effort with fellow smith David Flynn.

Rusty is constructed of forged steel and
barbed wire spheres; he weighs 350 pounds.

While on display for Christmas viewing
in 1995 he was abducted on the evening
of December 7th.

Rusty's kidnapping made the front page
of the local newspaper.

There were several sightings of the
snowman for the next several days.

On December 11th we received
an anonymous phone call;
Rusty had been spotted in an alley.
He was recovered and brought home.
