Mobius Installed in Public Art program

I attended the dedication of my Mobius sculpture at the public art program at the Goodson Recreation Center in Englewood Colorado.  I enjoyed meeting the people there, and talking about the Mobius.  The sculpture will be there for one year.

A different mobius mount

One of my clients sent me a photo of one of my mobius sculptures mounted on a somewhat different style base. He did this himself. There is a padded clip that the mobius slips in and out of. I normally clamp them directly to the base. Interesting to see a different approach.




The green color is one of the available finishes.  Most clients choose the shiny sanded copper finish.

Mobius Sculpture Accepted into Public Art Program

I was happy to receive an email today from South Suburban Parks and Recreation, telling me that my large Mobius sculpture was accepted into their public art program. It will be on display for one year, and they will pay me an honorarium.   South Suburban is on the south side of the Denver Metro area.

Christmas Ornament

This is my Christmas ornament this year, inspired by our recent trip to Ireland.

This is chasing and repouss√© work on copper, kind of like using a hammer and chisel.  As you can probably see, this is slightly 3D, a kind of low relief.

Steel and Glass Shelving




I built this shelving unit to display my art.  This will enable me to take some pieces out of storage and display them.

Updated Website

I updated my website to make it more mobile friendly.   I used “responsive design” to design pages that would display pretty well on an iphone or an ipad or a big computer screen.  Sometimes websites have totally different pages for mobile use, but that is a lot of extra work, when a simple format can work for any screen, big or small.  I ended up hand coding in html, a lot of work, but it keeps the code simple and short.

Please take a look and give me your comments.  I am especially interested in anything that does not work well, or looks strange, on your device.  Thanks.
