The latest news and views:


Let's get started ....


NEW IN THE STUDIO

A torus nears completion

Kevin is close to completing the solid-skinned torus he has been working on for several months. "I finally have added all the panels," he says. Each of the 63 panels was individually cut and fitted in this one-sided, three-dimensional sculpture (above). "Next is the finish work, then the patina."

Like After Escher, Mobilus, Skeletorus and Sprung, this geometric shape flows endlessly. See more photos of this as-yet-untitled sculpture on its own page.


The road goes on and on ...

Early stages of On the Road Again

To complement Cruisin', the sculptural door he created for a Flagstaff, Arizona, couple, Kevin has begun a new commission: two low fences that he calls On the Road Again.

The fences continue the roads introduced in the original piece. "Their flowing lines suggest roads beyond roads," Kevin says. The piece will have a rust patina.

To watch the piece's progress, visit its own page.


Mill and lathe education continue

While he works on these sculptures in the studio, Kevin is also taking time to learn to use the lathe and mill. "In addition to reading, researching online and talking to experts, I have to just use the equipment to get a feel for each tool," Kevin observes.

He spends three to six hours a week learning their intricacies and capabilities. "As I do, ideas for sculptures are starting to form," he says.
