Along with the content, material became a repository for the creative process and this also contributed to my personal identity. The balance of the silver and oxidized copper or brass provided a color contrast of white and black. I made those building structures into a more durable work when I transferred traditional materials into metals while retaining the original construction methods. My aim is to utilize materials to both offer an integration of the forms and create a dialogue between the work and the viewer.
