Yugo was the first of my flying creatures series. He’s some sort of dragon/bug hybrid, with predominantly dragon features.
His face, chest, belly, and backside are hand-cut cubes of black marble. His flanks and legs are found metal. His wings are hammered copper sheets. His spine and tale are shaped copper sheets, and his facial features are copper foil.
I make things because my demons won't give me any peace until I make something for us – mosaics, sculpture, drawings, books, stickers, furniture, tools...
I sell some of what I make, sometimes... when I can let go of it.
Often the work I sell is work created especially for a person. Commissions, pieces created as a collaboration between us, something that takes shape in our minds during a number of conversations, eventually making its way out into the physical world. Other times people just see something I've made and want to have it.
Books and stickers I just make, in large numbers. People buy them if they like them.
