Steve started metal crafting in Scandinavia in 1990 mainly to create some instrumenst for himself as at that time gongs were hard to find and were very expensive so Steve started hammering various metals cut into discs and within 2 years some of the North’s best musicians were playing on his creations including Paolo Vinaccia. Marilyn Mazur. Auden Kleive and many more.
‘In the early 1990’s I had a dream of a drummer on a mountain playing an otherworldly drums/percussion set and instead of a ride cymbal was a living bronze Dragons wing and he was playing this and it was a magical sound and people were going into trace. It took me some time and experimentation to translate this into a cymbal sculpture and in fact was the prototype for my inventing and pioneering cymbal and gong sculptures in the early 1990’s‘
