Stanford is a primarily self-taught blacksmith with a passion that lies in exploring non-traditional shapes in forged steel while using traditional blacksmith techniques and incorporating found objects in his sculptures. Influenced by tribal art, science fiction notions, and the elusive remnants of dreams, Stanford’s art explores the familiar while offering sub rosa glimpses of what could be commonplace in another world. Stanford states of his art, 'my work glorifies the aesthetic of the found… forging, assemblage arc welding and patination are the processes that dominate my practice.'
