In continual pursuit of beauty, my work and inspirations are deeply connected to the natural world, its intricate details, and captivating patterns. Experiencing the sense of awe, beauty, and power within nature helps me find my place in the world and a renewed sense of meaning beneath the layers of the hectic every day. I can find a renewed sense of peace as I lose myself in the meditation of transforming glass and metal into enduring forms of adornment or objects of everyday life. My love of good craftsmanship reflects my belief we should be creating a culture that values beauty and quality over quantity. It is my hope that what I create may come into someone else’s life and shift the balance of their world a little further in the direction of the power of awe and beauty.
