Much of my work originates from a deep love of machinery, and a curiosity about how things work. This piece is a salvaged head from a Bridgeport Milling Machine (a fairly iconic cornerstone of the metal working world). The idea was to build a literal reference to an exploded parts diagram of the machine, and use as many traditional manual machining techniques in the process to make it happen. The result is a real departure from the rest of my portfolio, but I’m confident that it will lead to more work in this vein.
