Joie De Vivre translates to Joy of Life. I wanted to make a sculpture of a female dancer because dance best embodies creativity and the female form’s dignity of movement. The metals used in this piece were one hundred percent reclaimed. I try to use reclaimed metal when possible to give it a new purpose from which it was originally intended. I prefer to work with metal and sometimes stone because of it’s endurance and appearance.
