Around the web
By day, I'm a commercial embroiderer, and have been for the last 20 years. Although logos and ball caps have supported me all this time, there are other things I do with my machines to entertain myself. In the evenings, and on weekends, I'm free to do whatever strikes my fancy, which could be anything at all. As you can see, I do have a tendency to work on ideas that are eye-catching, but enormous and very heavy. Generally, the really large ones are displayed in art galleries, or bank lobbies, but I do keep a few here in the front of my shop. People are fascinated with the idea of doing sculptures out of ordinary nails, and feel compelled to touch them, which is fine.

Frequently asked questions
How long does it take to make a sculpture out of nails?
If I have plenty of time to work on one, I can usually have it finished within a month. Each piece has roughly 20,000 nails in it.
How much does a nail sculpture weigh?
Each piece, including the base it rests on, weighs somewhere between 80 & 150lbs.
How does one move a nail sculpture?
The artwork is a rectangle of finished wood front & back, with a frame around the edges. It rests on a separate base, and is secured by large lag screws. Moving a piece requires me to separate them, and move them as two pieces, then reassemble them in the new location.
