So we understand that the hand of God created the universe. Today, we take that to mean the big bang. At the beginning of time, there was a huge explosion and out of that came everything. In came all energy and mass including the metal I use for sculpture and the heat and fire that are my tools.

 

Anything I could find in my shop was thrown into the modeling of this bronze. Plaster. Clay. Old found steel. New steel. Gears. Wire mesh. I used bailing wire to hold it all together.
