I enjoy bringing life and beauty to what is often considered to be junk. I love working with scrap bicycle chains and sprockets in particular for a plethora of reasons, including the fact that they are highly conducive to geometric designs, and they come in a variety of metallic ﬁnishes that often take on colorful patinas when heated. I like to think of all of the thousands of miles they have carried riders on their journeys and the stories they may tell if they could talk.
