Joshua Enck Studio  Abstract sculptor and adjunct professor. Trained as an architect and furniture designer. Based in Rochester, New York.

At dinner tonight I was glancing up at this older piece of mine and thinking I should make something in this vein again. Sound like a good idea? This little sculpture is called Pinhole and is fabricated from brass.

Sometimes the most utilitarian objects can be some of the most beautiful. I saw this drag line bucket hooked up to a crane at a great tractor show last summer. Such an amazing form and super fun to watch in action! I think the holes in the shovel are for draining when the work is with wet material or in water like when dredging.

Here's another view of the inside of my new metal Faceted Landscape sculpture. I was bracing the long edges with these clamped and tacked angles, but this solution didn't work. I ended up welding straight steel braces to the inside and that turned out to work the best and keep everything nice and straight!

As a sculptor, I work in a variety of materials, with wood and metal being my favorites. I chose the material based on concept, location, and the material I feel like working with at the moment. I have the first coat of black stain on this new abstract cherry piece. Thanks for looking!

I am bouncing between a couple projects in the studio lately, and today I was back to welding this new metal Faceted Landscape sculpture. Every triangle is cut to fit and I let the design grow organically in the studio. I am TIG welding from the inside in order to keep crisp lines and edges on the front.

Reminder to self: "add square tube here." I left the studio last night and needed to leave a note for the morning about bracing this joint. A waxy white pencil is perfect for these notes! This was in preparation for some TIG welding today where two curved planes come together.

Back from a gallery exhibition, my Faceted Landscape #9 is back in the studio and up on the wall. If you're able to stop by my studio, you can see this wall sculpture in person. Dimensions are 36" square and the finish is graphite and wax. Thanks for taking a look!

Marked the end of teaching my introductory drawing class this semester by making a little thank you sketch for some friends. I often work through sculpture ideas in these little drawings. Have a wonderful weekend!

Fractal Gait all back together after the first coat of graphite finish. There will be two more coats when I can set aside some time in the coming weeks. This wood sculpture is the largest piece I have made so far. It comes apart into six sections to make it easier to transport. I built it entirely on the fly in the studio, working in an organic manner to build this abstract design. Thank you for taking a look at my work!

I needed to make a rough pattern for an oddly shaped piece of steel, so last night I glued up a big plywood blank using the same curved piece of steel as a pattern. I used bending plywood, most of my clamps, and some steel bars to make a simple bent lamination. It's not the tightest lamination, but I think it will get the job done. I'll use this to trim to size instead of trying to cut the steel to fit.
