Have been a metalsmith since 1984, after getting seriously hooked on
jewelrymaking in taking jewelry classes at high school. Since then,
been perfecting my craft, and taking metalsmithing into new
directions with tableware, flatware, boxes and vessel forms. Urban
and industrial landscapes, architecture and patterns in nature is
what inspires me, for I like clean architectural forms. I love to
form and shape wire into many different ways, and have been
knitting/weaving wire for almost as long. As I say, my motto is
hammer in one hand and torch in other hand. Anything involving
brazing or hammering is my passion and I deliberately design work to
involve as much soldering as possible.

Passion is contagious! Show us your passion, Show us your work!
