DaceK-13 Metal Art    


Artist Statement

As the son of an artist and master metalsmith, my blood is the confluence of the two. It was inevitable that metal would become my medium. Encouraged from an early age not to follow parental paths, artistic expression was not given much attention – or repressed all together. However, flashes of passion and skill with the sterile medium garnered praise and support that fueled the dormant flame. I am a metal artist!

I’ve created a wide array of functional and artistic metal pieces, finding pleasure in the process of creation – plan, sketch, fabricate, and deliver. The intellectual exercise and challenge is motivating, and the craftsmanship of handwork is very rewarding. I enjoy creating unique objects that are used or encourage interaction. I like abstraction because of the mental engagement required of the viewer. Their past and present experiences will ‘personalize’ what they see. My work simply offers a platform for mental junkets of whimsy and calmness.
