Jeff Owen's sculptures emerge with patterns, taking one piece of steel, adding to it, or deleting from it. When a sculpture encompasses all of his creative energy, it is finished. His technique is brute force, decide-at-the-moment. Interesting shapes of metal; the patterns, textures, and grains; all entice him to create. He resists conformity and mass production.
