Tim has created many shapes and sizes of spiders, all harmless!! The big one or "Big Daddy" as we call him is 13 feet across. It is made of drilling rod and a redwood body. "Big Daddy continues to move when you push on it. The other spiders are made from rebar, engine parts, fire alarms and whatever it takes to make the body. The fire alarm spiders are working fire alarms, or heat sensors.
"Horsepower II" is made out of all engine parts. It is 2nd out of a series. All horses are made of exclusively auto parts, yet each horse is unique and totally different with personalities all their own.
Childhood Fantasies is a piece I was commissioned to do by the FOUS IV. They wanted a piece that was interactive and could be enjoyed by all ages and cultures. It has been displayed at West Fest in West Valley City as well as the advertising piece for the FOUS (Faces of Utah Sculpture)IV at the Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley City. Each of the red knobs creates a reaction, whether it is squirting water or making a noise. When it is displayed it is enjoyed by all and always brings a crowd.
The Guardian is my first sculpture, and the start of my career as an Artist. The piece is one solid piece of Tamarisk. The wood itself is very valuable in that it has a considerable amount of burl. The burl in the wood and the way it grew tells the story of the wood's life.
My wife calls this spot because it came from the workshop into the livingroom and it needed to be nice to stay in the house. Spot is made from automotive parts, metal, and bone. The head and vertebrae are from a deer.
The butterfly is created using springs and metal to create the body. The wings are glass from different cars. This one was created for the Mom of the son whose car the glass was from. Some of the butterflies have painted wings and some don't.
A metal and wood sculpture standing 8 ft. tall. The wood is one solid piece of wood shaped and sanded to keep the original curves and lines of the piece. When you look at "Life" you can see many aspects of life in figures and faces.
As an artist I see beauty in everything from a car part to a unique piece of wood. My goal is to make art unique and fun, something with a WOW factor. Something you want to bring everybody to see and that you won't find any place else. my art also has a contemplative side, one that makes you think about here the materials came from and their history, or what made the uniqueness and beauty of the wood. Each sculpture has a story to tell.
The materials for my sculptures are found in old tools, car parts, motorcycles, farm equipment, wood, and whatever else inspires me. One of the things I enjoy is being able to take something that has been discarded or deemed useless and bring it back to life. I enjoy creating everything from human figures to animals, giant bugs to miniature dinosaurs, fairies to dragons, from realistic to abstract.
I have had classes in perspective, drawing, sculpture, and ceramics. I take from the world around me, libraries, museums, galleries, my mistakes, experiments, and other artist's experience.
I am a desert rat raised in Mesa, AZ and then living in Southern Nevada. i love the outdoors and the activities the outdoors provide. We moved to Utah 4 years ago and are enjoying the seasons and the colors that go with them.
