Artists

Some of the traditional metal smithing techniques I use include soldering, surface manipulation, hydraulic press forming and wax carving. I use an array of semi precious stones selected for color, character and sometimes even imperfections. Everything I fabricate starts with either a sheet of silver, a coil of wire or a block of wax waiting to be carved. My work is influenced by Old World details and textures yet always with the desire to keep a contemporary edge.
