Dean's Vision Statement
It is my goal to create functional art from found objects, unique recycled materials, and fabricated steel. Items that reuse what others discard and give them a new life to enhance their environment rather than burden it.
Where possible I use recycled or sustainable materials such as cold steel, cast iron items, recycled wine crates and recycled wood from homes built in the early part of the 20th century. My fabrications are made by using what I see as the beauties in items that other do not. I try to allow the original items to be recognized, yet used in new ways to their original purpose.
My functional art pieces are practical items that hopefully take discarded items from the environment they were in yesterday and enhance the environment they are used in today.
