I’m striving to convey a sense of peace through the melding of many types of materials. I express this aesthetic by using the ancient techniques of sawing, forming, texturing, torching, and shaping the pieces.
I learned this work from my father and my grandfather. Learning how to use old-fashioned tools enabled me to create pieces that have a playful and modern flair but also respect the tradition of the craft that was passed down to me.
Learning skills such as metal smiting allowed me to take my craft further and develop my own unique style.
