The work that I create varies in size from objects that can be held in the hand, to objects that hold or support. They are sculpturally functional objects that blend asymmetrical geometry with the interaction of basic shapes to create gradual alterations in composition. These pieces rely on subtleties, as line and shape intersect in careful transitions of form. The curves, edges, and tapers inherent create an uncluttered overall composition within the context of the initial purpose of the object.
Metal and wood are used to build a path of exploration between lines and surfaces, which draw the eye from one nuance to another to create a rhythm of intricate detail, and open space. This juxtaposition of space and subtlety ultimately becomes a dialogue of visual and physical balance between precariousness and stability. My pieces are fading, segmented landscapes, where delicately changing planes build a complex architecture around a minimal form.

The other day a young furniture maker was at the gallery, Matthew Nauman, who studies at IUP. He told me he had once been to a lecture you held at IUP (I think) and was very impressed. Unfortunetaly, he cannot come to the opening this Saturday for you to meet him but I'm sure he'll be at your opening in Sep.
In case you'd like to look at his website and get in touch with him:
though he'll probably show up at crafthaus soon .... :-)
