Artist’s Statement: As a contemporary designer, John blends the ancient art of hand-forged metal with the contemporary sculptures of today’s new Century Modern.
Artist’s Bio: With no formal education in fine art, John is primarily self-taught. His first passion is finding the essence of design using the free form malleability of metal, although he enjoys complimenting his designs with other media like wood, glass and stone. The ancient art of hand-forged metalsmithing brings a fluid style to John’s work not often seen in modern design, capturing movement in the moment and using negative space as a new way of looking at his subjects. He finds his inspiration in nature, music, diverse world art and collaboration with artist friends. He has established an eclectic style ranging from an organic surrealism to the simple clean lines of today’s new Century Modern.
As a professional designer and sculptor, John has expressed his talent in many things from sculpture to architectural design; he has no boundaries and welcomes each challenge as an opportunity to expand. His vision is to create a timeless style using classic materials and craftsmanship that people enjoy at all levels.
