Artist Statement – Bird With A House In Its Head

This is the largest of the 30 bird sculptures that I have created. Atop spindly legs, a mechanical stomach and wings constructed from lawn mower blades, sits a head with a small house as its skull. I have used the 3 dimensional house form in several large sculptures: Dream Deferred, La Ville Industriale and Detroit Entre Deux Lacs. The house form has a fond centering element to me. The steel sections of the sculpture are heated with an acetylene torch, hammered, shaped and stick welded. After brushing the surface with an electric wire wheel, the surface is coated with oil.
