Anthropomorphic sculptures made in 2018-2019.  Creating these is where I learned many of the processes, techniques and materials that I use in the abstract sculptures I make now.

There were 2 generations of these: 1st Gen sculptures were steel and fused glass.  Free standing or wall hanging; the former were typically mounted in granite rocks.  Some wall hanging pieces with and without glass using all kinds of techniques and patinas.

Some of which turned out better than others.  The ones that didnt work out, I don’t do anymore.  Although I continue to do research on other shit that doesnt work either.  “Get up.  Go again.”  Really good advice

For the 2nd Gen sculptures, I started to include Wedi board to give depth to the wall sculptures.  They are obvious – they stick out from the wall.
