"Predator 2013"
This sculpture began in the studio of well known glass artist Tony Milici. Tony was commissioned to build the lobby of the new City Hall Building in Las Vegas. Tony's design incorporated very large slabs of laminated glass.  One of the eight foot tall by two foot wide, half ton slabs broke  and thus "Predator 2013" was born. I found  the above hunk of glass in the garbage pile outside of Tony's studio. I bought the 50 pound piece from Tony and had it cut on a waterjet.  I added the polished solid aluminum fin and the polished solid brass feet.  The jagged edge of the sculpture was the original fracture point of the slab.

"Nude 2013"
This piece began at a garage sale. I bought a bucket of plumbing parts and said to myself  "those red knobs look like breasts."
Then I had my friend Tracy strike a pose for me and  thus "Nude 2013" was born
