Starting with a pile of stainless steel drops, a plasma cutter, and a mind that churns out shapes and concepts, Ulrich developed a motion-filled sculpture series.
They are lacy and muscular. Lyrical. Flowing geometrics.
They portray an innate sense of life and organic fecundity.
Inspired by growth and galaxies, primordial soup and bubbles, Ulrich generated the series:

The images below allow you to follow along as Ulrich goes through the step by step fabrication process of "Ringer, Interconnected."
During any given year, Ulrich will work on various projects, from a 25-foot tall corporate commission for a grand plaza to a fountain for a private home to various tabletop sculptures for his galleries and shows.
Each of Ulrich's sculptures requires different fabrication techniques, and with some he will pull out many tools, crank up the forklift and supplement hiss own efforts with the overhead crane.
Ulrih's artistic process evolves from research and study, through experimentation and, after endless hours in the studio and often sleepless nights of mental manipulations, the artful forming of the finished artwork.
It is an orchestrated choreography of materials, tools, people, and time. with lots of pounding, clanging and whirring as accompaniment.
