His concept pieces evoke contemplation about the significance of bones as a narrative of the human condition.

Keith Plummer’s Artist’s Statement
“Time melts when I am creating, and I find myself floating from one idea to the next. My hands do the thinking as I channel a time when metal was about power and honor. Perhaps this ancestral gift is a continuation of a lost generation who were doing things for beauty not for a buck. Their work was symbolic, and their signature deeply imbedded through confident strokes of originality and ingenuity.”
