I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
My love for working with wood began when I was nine years old visiting my uncle in England. There, I watched him build a model sailboat. When I returned home, I built a workbench in my parents' basement and started working with simple tools and scrap wood. Over the years, my skills improved, and I began to develop my style. I came to the realization that if my work was to improve craftsmanship, material, and function was not enough. The work had to be about form. I decided to earn a Fine Arts Masters in Studio Art.

Now, many commissions later I hope my furniture conveys a sense of the person behind the art: someone who loves the creative process. Each new design is an adventure, exploring my imagination and the potential of the material. My hands-on approach allows me to let the simplicity of the design reveal itself, creating a piece that imparts serenity and calm, reflecting the tree’s grace and strength. As the design becomes real and tangible, I get a sense of a tree evolving into a new life as a useful piece of art. I’m grateful to be the catalyst for this rebirth.

Glen, Thank you for the welcome.

Like your sculptural work, I mostly make chairs(keeping the wolf from the door) but just finished a desk with a little bit of carving on some wooden rocks for a leg.

Thanks for your positive comment about my vessels. I, too, love working in wood... I'm a turner. In fact, just got rid of a big gas kiln to make more room for my lathes and wood shop. I've enjoyed seeing your work, too. AM
 
 
 

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.
