New Sculpture – Standing Knife Edge

Taking a bit longer than expected, I finally completed this new piece I’m calling Standing Knife Edge.  


It has a really great presence to it… the way it transitions from thin edge to expanding, space-encompassing form just sings.   I’m very proud of this piece.


The name references a sculpture that I love by Henry Moore in the collection of the Walker Art Center, but the idea was inspired by the custom forged knives and razor blades by Dylan Farnham.

I came across his stunning work just browsing online and quickly dropped him a note of my admiration. The exchanges that followed led to this design on my end and a new razor design on his end.

Even if you’re not particularly a fan of custom knife work, take some time to browse his website.  The level of artistry and pure heart he imbues his work with is inspiring.
