I specialize in ancient metalsmithing and illumination techniques for contemporary wearable, functional, and sculptural artwork. I have an absolute passion for process equal to my love of excellent design. The journey to the final object must be worthy of the result. For me, this journey is the converting of rapidly passing time into beautifully, painstakingly intricate objects of mystery and contemplation. My techniques are laborious and intensive, demanding deep knowledge and acute skill, which counter society’s impulse for immediacy. My relentless need for progress and to make a difference in the world push me to use time, process, and materials in groundbreaking ways to create heirlooms for the future.
