For many years I have worked with concrete, specifically, concrete that has been infused with powdered (atomized) metals, giving the material a combination of characteristics of metal and stone. Working with methods to lighten the weight of this material, exaggerated more by the additional weight of the metals, I have refined a method to create concrete pieces light enough to hang on a wall. The tonal qualities of my work are achieved through pigments added to the mix and are integral to the mix. Further interest has been created with deep texture and niches to give the piece a more dimensional feel. I feel I am painting with concrete.
