"Brian Ferriby"


“I sculpt because it is a perfect combination of my passions.  Sculpture embraces space and form like architecture, movement and rhythm like music, and beauty and simplicity like nature.  I prefer to work from intuition.  I rely upon similarity of form to unite a composition.  I do not know what the outcome of each piece will be until it is completed.  Learning from the current work provides the inspiration for the next.  I build my sculptures from materials native to Michigan.  I use steel and copper, both originally mined in the Upper Peninsula and transported by ship to the mills of the Midwest.  I also use techniques that are elemental to the region, from those used by the earliest blacksmiths to those of the ironworkers who built factories, skyscrapers, and bridges.  I believe my sculpture is a continuation of these innovations.  While I find much to admire and emulate in previous work by other craftsmen, I continue to search for artistic avenues of expression as of yet unexplored.”
