You start with a basic form or idea in your mind and study and play with it until your intuition changes it into a significant object. It may be a basic flowing shape usually first drawn on a piece of paper. The next stage formed in the rough with the medium of metal and stone. At this point the form or shape needs observation, perhaps a little refinement; so it gets tweaked to my liking. Spontaneity is key here. A little magic is added to the creative kettle.
