Complex interwoven steel and flowing movement is the focus of recent sculptural work. While primarily abstract, my sculptures suggest natural phenomena influenced by botany, earth sciences and astronomy. Sculptural components are forged with traditional blacksmithing, welded then finished with patinas, paint or powder coating. These are personal choreographic gestures in metal, capturing the grace observed in our slowly unfolding natural world.– M. Attebery
