I am a traditional silversmith and goldsmith.
My work attempts to combine the best of traditional silver, gold, and
copper work with techniques learned from American (19th c.)
blacksmithing. While my techniques are traditional, my designs
generally are contemporary, albeit with a historic twist. The result
is a style uniquely my own. Some of the tools used at the studio are
over 125 years old. Several of the techniques used are over 2000
years old Many have been reverse engineered from archaeological
discoveries and artifacts (I am a former archaeologist).
