Schaffer's sculptures represent the dynamic and powerful meditations on the reality of geometric repetition in the natural world. These sculptures explore the shapes created by the branching of plants to catch the sunlight, the convoluted unfurling of clouds, the formation, and fracturing of mountains from the forces within the earth. Because of the nonlinear, reflexive nature of physical processes, they tend to create spiral forms. Schaffer's sculptures, instead of illustrating any specific phenomenon, grow in the same reflexive manner as real complex systems. Currently, Schaffer maintains two studios: one in Washington, D.C and the other in Pietrasanta, Italy.
