The iron casting process is just as important as its product. Within both I seek to harness the dichotomy between chaos and control. Molds control the chaos of molten metal, the edges serve as parameters for the sculpture to create itself. The random patterning of the metal surface is like a topographical mapping of its form, created by nature and controlled by the artist.
