Mike has worked with metal for years, and in the process of cutting and welding has found that there is always a heat signature of color left. Those colors combined with his imagination are what you experience when you see Mike's creations
His work is entirely custom, hand made and most is three dimensional. He use several different grinding and heating techniques that bring out colors and shadows that vary greatly, thus creating a wonderful play on light. As the light changes so too the colors and shadows.
As is with most artists, Mike's inspiration comes from a multitude of areas, including newspapers, magazines, the internet and my own travels. He really enjoys interacting with people and using their ideas for their special needs and thus has done many custom pieces over the years.
