“Projects in sculptured lighting offer one dimension
further into the world of metal design. When finished,
the sculpture seems to have taken on a life of its own.
The serendipitous bonus of patterns in light and
shadow cast on the walls and ceilings, seem to declare
an identity. When lit from within, areas of design
are emphasized that would otherwise not be noticed. “Lit
from within” is a nice phrase whether applied to
a person or a work of art.
“Let your light shine” says it all for me.
This is an opportunity to underline and emphasize shapes
that I create in metals… presenting them boldly
to the world for their enjoyment and their utility.
Light makes manifest what would normally be dark or obscure.
When the light comes on, “shadows flee away…”
or remain… but only where the creator of the light
The privilege of creativity in an area of personal expertise
belongs to the artist who travels the path, or blazes
the trail of his or her choosing (or calling). Staying
on that path requires vision, dedication and endurance,
and hopefully that path will become brighter and brighter.
For me, it has, and no doubt it will continue ‘until
the full day has come.’ I offer thanks to the God
of all Light who consistently shines, with no variation
