"I am at the mercy of my material..."

Voted by the readers of Willamette Week as Best Visual Artist in Portland (2nd place), Josh Daily is a metal and found material sculpture artist. He creates art from recycled and repurposed materials, utilizing a variety of items such as metal, construction scrap, to even silverware and ordinary household appliances. Materials he uses will take decades to biodegrade - if at all. By repurposing discarded materials, and removing them from the waste stream, he creates art inspired by the beauty of items found in everyday life.

"When looking for art supplies in daily life, it is a constant secondary thought process." Josh says. "For example, as I'm walking down the street or sitting with a group of people, I'm constantly studying my surroundings. I see everyday objects and think that would make a great eye, knee, or if I cut that piece of metal, I could make it look like feathers. That whatchamacallit would make a great base for a coffee table. I am at the mercy of my material."

Pricing for artwork begins at $100 and increases up to approximately $3,000+, based on amount of material, labor, and size of the work. Please inquire directly for specific pricing.
