About Mark Rafter
Artist - I make abstract sculptures using steel, acrylics and glass (kiln-formed or mosaic).
My personal aesthetic tends towards colorful, highly textured and dynamic surfaces. The sculptures are built using steel or an industrial foam core material as the foundation. The surfaces are then covered with various texturing compounds providing a design surface that I colorized with metal coatings, burnt painted metal, patinas and acrylic paints.
