ABOUT US

Our Vision and Experience

I like metal. I like that, with a little heat and more than a little force, you can transform it. I like involving myself in that process, the manual labor, and the unpredictability.

 

 

 

I was trained as a high-pressure plate and pipe welder in the United States Navy where excellence was the standard, and where I developed a deep respect for the form and function of steel. My studies in politics and history revealed how art has served as a representation of the state of a society since man discovered fire. My journey continued with a Master of Fine Arts degree with primary emphasis in sculpture and secondary emphasis in jewelry design and metalsmithing.
