I believe that if a form is organic, It is one that has evolved through maturation naturally, and by doing so, has achieved a unique existence. Natural shapes in the raw material, such as a knot or a crotch in a tree, or a jagged fracture running into a block of stone, often provide a sense of belonging; consequently, a shape to be explored and developed. Forces develop and change is created.
I enjoy the human anatomy, its creation, and the energy within. Change is the essence of organic life, and thus, the basis of organic form. Being inherent to life itself, change is essential to healthy development. The existence of meaningful relationships within a form evokes a sense of substance, which then provides a justifiable existence.
As it was hundreds of years ago, Steve develops forms and their evolving relationships with hand tools – hammers, chisels, files and abrasives for polishing. Thoughts do not materialize into form quickly. The process is one of patience and the resulting form embraces its evolution, thus, providing a unique sensitivity in form.
