A simple reduction of primitive, industrial and organic forms drive the design of my work. Smooth brushed sterling silver finishes are accented by matte grey oxidation, semiprecious gemstones, rich pigments or 24 carat gold. Movement and subtle asymmetry in my pieces keep them visually interesting and a pleasure to wear.
A love of art and science is the root of my career in metalsmithing, the arc of which includes a bit coursework on the fundamentals, an apprenticeship and much self-imposed trial and error. My work is primarily spurred from an interest in shape manipulation and experimentation.
I rely predominantly on classic metal work skills including sawing, forming, casting, forging and torch work.
