One of a series of small organic abstract heat-colored steel engravings inspired by celestial and other themes. Blue for Gold began as a quick charcoal sketch on a whitened piece of cold-rolled steel scrap. I made the initial design without forethought, working to refine it and make it harmonious, then adding the grinding textures and heat colors in the same spontaneous spirit.
