ARTIST STATEMENT I aim to build a polished final product, driven by a clean, sophisticated and balanced design aesthetic. Color and symmetry play an important role; craftsmanship is paramount. I frequently engineer hidden connection and employ technical methods of metal forging, hollowware, cold connection riveting, and hot connection soldering/brazing/welding. My preferred materials are copper, bronze, steel and acrylic.
