Experimental artist who changed junk cars into dinosaurs and created “Common Woman,” a life-sized sculpture assembled from discarded washers. He could assemble an automobile from extra parts before he actually learned to operate a vehicle. He hand-welded his dinosaur sculptures, a few of which were almost twenty ft high and sixty ft long. He offered a few of these exclusive works for quantities nearing $100,000. He was among eleven children created to a farming family members in Sebastian, Florida. He and Barry Flanagan had been both modernist sculptors.
