Artiglio” is Italian for talon. This sculpture was inspired by the spirit and flight of raptors. Birds and wings have been a conscious and unconscious recurring theme in many of my sculptures. I am drawn to their physical beauty and strength, as well as their spiritual and symbolic imagery. The upward motion of this piece embodies flight, and the sky becomes a significant element of the piece occupying the negative space. The stainless steel blades are blunt to the touch but visually convey the ferocity of talons ready to strike- the gesture of outstretched wings ready to pounce its prey. The heavy forged material embodies strength and power, and the open movement gestures toward the sky.
