I usetraditional silversmithing techniques combined with clay hand-building to makesculpture, art objects, and wearable art. The materiality of the pieces isimportant to me. I like the gem-like quality that vitreous enamel imparts oncopper and the way that the polished and more opulent surfaces contrast withthe more earthy texture and feel of clay.
I like to thinkof the work that I create as totems: objects of beauty, mystery and silentpower, primitive vestiges of a future time and space.
Every piece is handcrafted in my studio based in Tucson, Arizona.
