TREBLE CLEF

As a kid, Richard spent endless hours doodling. He made shapes in dirt in his backyard, or in sand at the beach. Sometimes he would even carve shapes in watermelon, or in chunks of cheese, before happily devouring them. Later on, in school, he took drafting and drawing classes, learning the formal techniques of visualizing and drawing shapes.

For over 40 years, working metal into imagined shapes has been the artist’s fascination. All the sounds, the sparks, the flames, and the smells of metalworking are his spark to get started. Watching the molten puddle, while forming a new weld, is a hypnotic experience. A flame or arc, at five to ten thousand degrees, can't help but grab your attention. This sculpture is handcrafted and completely Tig welded and finished to look like a solid chunk of steel. 

 Both of Richard’s parents were music teachers. This sculpture is in their memory, and to the others who appreciate good music. Treble Clef is available for purchase for $4900.
