As I strolled through her recent art show or the winding paths of Rochelle Ford’s garden, I was amazed by the number of original pieces of art she has created. The home of the metal sculptor artist is adorned with colorful mixed, metal creations of sculptures, paintings and collages. Her creations are sensuous and covered in intriguing bright glorious color. Each object will arouse emotion, discussion and interaction.
When she works Rochelle uses an oxyacetylene welding torch to fuse recycled metals and other discarded materials into bold objects of strength and beauty. She is constantly searching for recycled organic and industrial materials.
Her unique art is born and created in various sizes and shapes from steel, copper, brass, feathers, bones, beads, yarn, paint and glass.
