Ravens intrigue me. They are the stuff of myth and legend in many cultures. Throughout history, Ravens have been considered magical: complex and contradictory. They have been associated with wisdom, prophecy: good fortune as well as trickery and evil. These remarkable birds are clever problem solvers and tool makers.
In this series, I have attempted to capture the essence of the raven’s energy and mythical powers. To do so, I have used a wide variety of materials collected from my world. Those materials include: new and used metal sheet & wire, rusted and deteriorated oil drums, discarded farm fencing, various and sundry metal parts (screws, bolts, clamps, etc). Other components of my sculptures include wood, bone, feathers spent banded auto tires, cement, plastic and gemstones.
