  • "Tomfoolery" is a rolling ball sculpture created specially for the Indianapolis Public Library Central Branch. The sculpture measures 25" x 35" x 18" and is made entirely of hand-bent, TIG-welded stainless steel. This captivating piece was created with their summer reading program in mind, which was themed around music. They already had a display case available for the sculpture, so it was simply my job to build it to size and make some magic happen with metal, wood blocks, a bell and a xylophone! You can see from the video that both the library and their patrons are extremely pleased with the end result. It is a pure joy to me to see my artwork appreciated so much by all, but especially children. I really felt fortunate to be able to create this work of fun, kinetic art for them. If you're in the area, stop by the Central Branch of the Indianapolis Public Library and check it out! It runs all day, every day of the week during business hours.
