Artist of the Day / KKatz / Jackson, Mississippi

Another recycler with a great imagination and sense of design!

“I absolutely love what I do, creating new designs and learning new techniques is my pasion in life and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to make it my living.”

“Favorite materials: oldusedwornlovedforgotten and left on the side of the road

“Everything you see is made from scratch using reclaimed pipe.”

“Each piece of pipe is cut, threaded and welded per order. I use pipe from local salvage yards and demolition sites and only buy from local family owned businesses.”

About destructivetesting

I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated. I consider my clocks to be small sculptures with moving parts. And, my lamps to be small sculptures with light. My mirrors are reflective sculptures. DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses. I interpret this in my artwork as using materials in different ways or combinations than they were designed to be used. I also just like the slightly ominous sound of the term...
