Monument for a peace center on Robben Is., South Africa.

Since the creation of metal sculpture involves the use of so much force (in forming directly in metal) or heat (in casting bronze), I have always preferred working on a small scale, where sensitive, expressive passages are easier to form. This scale is also more intimate, more human.

But on occasion I enjoy doing something really big.  It not only feels impressive to be in the presence of a really big piece, but it also allows me to experience the material very intently because there is so darn much of it!
