About

that's me

Bending steel does not show its weakness, just its strength in motion.  Bending steel is what I do in my studio on the coast of North Carolina.  I utilize modern and traditional techniques to forge steel into nature inspired works of art.

Over the years I have collected an assortment of modern, vintage, and custom designed tools, which I use to evoke sensuous lines and sweeping curves from raw steel.  As a result, each piece reflects a sense of craftsmanship and attention to details not traditionally seen in today’s fast paced world.

This blog is a few thoughts, ideas, maybe some rants, and definitely some insight into what is going on in the studio.

 Let me know what you think.

  1. Sir, You did NOT design the Buzzard, Bomb & Anchor!, I have the original, painted in oil on canvas by “The Gunny”, aka Papa-Smurf, GySgt Frank Simmons. Signed CWO3 Dave Bailey, EOD Ret. Your integrity is questionable at best.

    • I have just read your comment and feel you misunderstood my statement.
      As you pointed out, the original piece was painted by someone who was, until now, unknown to me. I am glad to now know his name.
      I did indeed “design” the piece you see in the photo. I designed how it could be made of metal and crafted in the style in which I work.
      I made no claim to be the originator of piece, just the designer of a work of art which celebrates the men of a dangerous and deadly profession.

      And for that privilege, sir, I thank you, and celebrate you service.
