The forms I create evolve from solving specific design and technical problems using traditional metalsmithing tools and techniques. All forms develop from a flat sheet of metal manipulated into unique three-dimensional shapes which requires a high degree of technical skill. I try to amplify the qualities of the metal by exploring colors, textures, reflections, and continuous forms. There will never be an end to this exploration.
