Forged steel, natural oxide patina
The Hexobelisks are an ongoing series, forged by selective hydraulic deformation of hexagonal tubing. Exploring the theme of using natural forces to stress engineered materials to the point of failure, the harmonious forms are a result of the destructive process. These playful forms are place markers, creating an intriguing point of interest. The process of deformation is scalable, occurring identically on tubing of all sizes. This allows for creating works from moderate size up to full monumental scale with the same technique.
