Jack & Alice McLean

One-of-a-kind bronze constructions are welded, forged, machined and oxidized with hot process patinas.  The process has evolved in my 40 year dialogue with materials, and I have learned when to impose my will and when to listen.  I want my pieces to look “made” and to retain evidence of my hand and thought.  Working in series creates a slowly accumulating momentum, wearing away the non-essential to reveal what is authentic to a personal and particular aesthetic.”
