Steelin' in Style

What's Up?

People bring me things all the time, and that fuels my work. A '90s snow blower, horseshoes from the farrier, treasures from other people’s boneyards. When people learn what I use and what I like, they start watching and saving things for me. It’s just fabulous to have this kind of support. Both here in Nevada County and in Napa, where I used to live. I'm always grateful for these gifts.

Please enjoy my posts about life in the country, creating my metal garden art. And don’t hesitate to call with questions about pieces or about arranging a studio tour.

Snow's main body comes from a snow blower. One day a friend stopped by on his way to the dump. He leaned out the window of his truck and asked, “Is there anything in my truck that you want?” And he had a ‘90s snow blower! And that was just so much fun to work with! 

Also, I found the artist online who created these beautiful textured circles. Her last name is Hale. I found these circles at a garage sale as a one-piece sculpture, which I then took apart. So it’s art re-organized. 

And what’s also cool about this piece is that I’ve never done legs like this before. I love the dynamic bent posture. It’s like she’s skateboarding down a parking garage ramp. Totally love that angle. I’m going to use that again.
