The most challenging sculptures I’ve produced also turned out the most rewarding.
Sitting with a client showing them drawings of my proposed sculpture, seeing their eyes widen at the prospects of what they’ll own soon and delighting them with expectations over a cup of coffee blinds me from what comes next.
Usually in the early hours of the morning it hits me: what have I gotten myself into this time? How on earth am I going to build that?! The works I do have no precedent because I won’t limit myself to where I’ve been before. Fear of the unknown is a the best cure for breaking boundaries and finding out just what can really be done.
And you know what? It’s always the same. Somehow, sooner of later I always seem to figure it out a step at a time. That’s the key and it’s how I find such phenomenal versatility from the most humble, simple and yet stunningly beautiful material: paper.
