Metal

"Graphic drawing, sculpture and artistic drawing classes preceded a 5 year adventure learning all glass related techniques during which I graduated in the Metiers d'arts - Glass Techniques (Cégep du Vieux-Montréal). I was then in my thirties.

At 50, I gifted myself a plasma cutter. That was it. Every little itch I have carried during my life with regard to metal came alive.

The play on light that was so important with my glass artwork resurfaced with a vengeance with this unbelievable dense medium that is metal. My work gives twice. Once at first glance. And again when the eye gets a hold of the shadows created by the intricacy of the work."
