Description: I'm a huge fan of science fiction, both literature and in popular media. Many of my designs are influenced by my thoughts of what a futuristic spacecraft or mysterious monolith would look like. "Sky Obelisk" was truly inspired by these modernistic day dreams.
This artwork continues my geometric cubist theme of aluminum faced squares of varying depth. The alternating depths adds movement and different perspetives at every angle. I also added fused cobalt glass panels to the piece, which not only compliment the soft tone of the hand etched aluminum squares, but they also add a futuristic aspect to the piece -- Almost as if one was looking through tiny windows into a gaseous cobalt blue plasma world. Well, perhaps this viewpoint is biased by my love of space. Yet, the beauty of this piece is that it is very subjective and does engage a viewer to contemplate their own meaning for the artwork. After all, isn't that the reaction one would expect from a mysterious futuristic sky obelisk?
"Sky Obelisk" is wired to be be hung both vertically (image 1, 3, 4) or horizontally (image 2).

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.
