Sculptural Welding

I now use to host my sculptural work. This page is no longer updated.

The further I got into my PhD, the more I realized I needed to bulk up on my fabrication skills before I left. The one area I had very limited exposure to was metal work. So in Fall 2010, I took a sculptural welding class at CMU with super-awesome Dee Briggs. So. Much. Fun. Even at 8:30am. And useful too - I've already made stuff for several projects, including the shoulder frame for the first generation OmniTouch. In June 2013, I took a powder coating class at TechShop Pittsburgh, and have begun experimenting with controlled rusting, metal patinas and clear gloss hardcoats. I've increasingly begun experimenting beyond metal and into mixed media.
