METAL WORK

Learning the art of metalsmithing has opened my eyes to a whole new world of exploration and opportunity. While so many processes have become mechanized and digitized, I find solace in the art of using my hands. From saws with tiny blades, hammers of many shapes and sizes, anvils and fire. The tools are so basic and yet so much can be accomplished with them. Forming a sheet of metal into a vision is an exciting process. One that leaves you feeling utter satisfaction when the work is done.

WOOD WORK


In my desire to create pieces of wearable art, I find myself drawn to using wood as not only a material, but an inspiration. My styles tends to be more earth-centered and organic, even when the edges seem rough and angular, the wood serves to remind of us that we are firmly planted in nature. I have been experimenting with different types of wood grains and colors. Sometimes, I paint them, but only a bit. I enjoy letting the materials speak for themselves.
