"I've always had a fascination with foundry patterns. Made by highly skilled craftsmen, I see each as a sculpture unto itself, a completely realized object. However, through the skills of the foundry, machinist and mechanic, the wooden object becomes fully its intended self. The allegory here is that we too are complete unto ourselves, but through tutelage, the influence of peers and heroes, the abrasions of life, the natural flow of our life course, we become more than we were. It's crucial that each one of us follows our own path, whims and interests, no matter how singular or quirky."
