I am interested in the way light plays off intersecting planes and the way color shifts depending on the angle of the light. The surface textures are reminiscent of hand-rendered plaster, rusted metal, or carved stone. There may be a look of decay or a thought of things past. Certainly, there is the presence of time and a human touch. The blade form came from a desire to see how light would interact with a curved surface and the sharp edges of intersecting flat planes.
