This piece is my interpretation of the quote …. “If pigs could fly.” A fanciful happy pig flying to unknown destinations.
“Pigasus” was created much like a line drawing, only three dimensional with the addition of steel line after line until a form begins to appear. The repetition of heavy welded wire rod creates dimension until the form of “Pigasus” emerges. The legs and wings trusting back were intended to give a dynamic movement to the piece. The mounting is intended to give “Pigasus” the feeling of lifting off. It is my hope all viewers enjoy and smile when they experience this piece.

I use steel to create my sculptures. Steel sculpture is a paradox. It yields under heat and hammer becoming almost fluid, yet incredibly unforgiving when cold. Its creation becomes a deliberate and conscience decision.
