Read Fred Borcherdt's Biography

"The relationship of form to function as exemplified in old worn tools is a characteristic I use to impart a feeling of age as well as utility. Another evolving idea is a feeling of spiritual continuity in making a wood sculpture by starting with a tree, or making a stone sculpture starting a rock strewn riverbed or quarry cliff-face. This feeling carries over to the scrap yards where I find steel that had another life. Most of my works are autobiographical—a means of recording personal feelings and experiences as objects that are intuitively composed.” - Fred Borcherdt
