Rita Marie Ross at Armadillo Christmas Bazaar

Artist Statement:

“I am a direct metal sculptor working mainly in recycled copper wire. An ox-acetylene torch is used to anneal,braze and fused the metal making it easier to weave into intricate and strong sculptures. I am inspired by the destructive forces of nature as well as the beauty. My creative process demands attention to intense fire while transforming my memories and thoughts into metal art. I hope the work invokes calm.”
