Ornament and Crime is an essay written in 1908 by Adolf Loos, an Austrian architect active in the early 1900’s in Vienna. According to the text in the Call […]

I am now casting two new music sculptures, the first of which is […]

Kitsch: Craft So Bad That It’s Good – a group exhibition at the Alberta Craft Gallery in Edmonton until Oct. 30, 2021. I am pleased that my work […]

Baphomet

Baphomet 1

 

I have been remiss in posting new work. This WIP for Baphomet is lengthy as it encompasses about 6 months of work. In March 2021 I began to cast another PKKing sculpture “Baphomet” that I purchased in 2012. This is the second PKKing sculpture that I will cast in bronze. This work is much larger […]
