Description: A giant metal heart symbolyzing the strength and power of love's bond. The heart consists of long strips of aluminum and copper that are woven together to form a unified heart. I sanded and etched the aluminum strips and some of the copper for contrast; And the remaining copper elements were torch fired for effect. The heart represents the need for a strong union (weaving/compromising/symbiosis) between individuals and the fiery passion that is a natural outcome of love.

REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE! I love nature and I am a strong believer that minor changes can exponentially lead to a major positive impact. I do my best to recycle, repurpose, reuse and be the best conservationalist that I can be in my personal life and in my artwork. I purchase metals from mills that produce the bulk of their product from recycled materials and I always look for Earth friendly options to create my metal art. Many of my artworks also utilize "found objects" (recycled materials) and are guided by my love of nature. The majority of the elements that constitute this artwork come from recycled industrial metals and repurposed materials.
