Artist Statement

I am a second-generation metal worker and life-long musician creating melodic steel tongue drums and Singing Bowls from recycled propane tanks. For the drums, tanks are transformed in to sound sculptures by cutting and welding the ends into a saucer like disk. Tongues are hand cut and tuned to exact measurements and scales. The finishes range from preserving the rustic and weathered patina to polished iridescent heat treatments. These interactive art pieces are easily played, even for beginners.
