People often ask me what inspires me and I must say that classic cars play a big role in the inspiration for my metalwork. My father raised me going to car shows with him, and really influenced my eye for sculptural metal forms. I love the lines particularly of this ’57 Mercedes 300SL Gull Wing… the 300SL’s body was mainly steel, except for the aluminum hood, doors and trunk lid. Check out this video by Josh Clason that makes me swoon. The video is incredibly well-done, and really show the lines of this beautiful moving sculpture. So inspired!
