I work with steel, primarily making architectural metalwork. Untitled Study was born from leftover scraps from a large railing project. Seeing a pile of cut off tips of forged scrolls, and punched out pieces, I saw a large sculpture. While the study is diminutive is size, standing 8 inches tall, it has a monumental presence.
