Spending time with them in regular visits often meant exploring their acreage in solo wanderings around the barn, coops, and storage sheds. Later, as a teen, I spent three summers driving a tractor for my uncle pulling various implements around the fields. Early on, as I surveyed the various steel fabrications engineered for farming needs, I was conscious of the aesthetic beauty found in these implements for growing and harvesting food. Of particular interest to me were the rows of discs in the Disc Plow. These steel discs aligned in two rows are a staple in tilling the soil and turning it over to prepare it for the next planting. Each disc spends thousands of hours performing a herculean task. A farmer can sharpen these round soil-cutters only so many times before replacing the whole row becomes necessary. Most often these used steel discs are left to rust in a metal pile or sometimes transformed into a variety of jerry-rigged purposes around the barnyard. I decided to repurpose these utilitarian objects into a new life as a work of art. Welding, then grinding away the rust and scale, then leafing them with precious metals gives them a new aesthetic in interior living spaces. Powder coating in metallic or colorful exterior finishes gives them an artistic presence in gardens, under portals, or against stone walls. As a single element of focus, clustered together, or hung in a row… these workhorses of agriculture are transformed into abstract sculptural elements in collectors’ homes and outdoor spaces adding beauty and elegance to their environment.
