Phillip Glashoff

As a student of Agriculture Studies at California State Polytechnic University, Philip began his art career through the medium of sculpture when he wanted to create images that would have lasting impact and presence. 


Influences connecting him to his background in agriculture took hold as he began to salvage rusty machinery, fire extinguishers, compressor covers, motorcycle tanks, and other industrial farm implements that were abandoned and left for scrap. 


This wealth of found material became the inspiration for the whimsical sculptures that he is now famous for around the world.  Critics and collectors alike find his pieces to be full of both good will and humor; all the while melding the present with the past.
