My home studio in Cleveland Heights, Ohio
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
My work is a a marriage of two distinct mediums, metal and polymer clay - the architecture of the metal giving a structure to the softer, tactile quality of the inlays, downplaying color, allowing surface texture and luminous layers to create dimension. I am drawn to texture, line and repetitive patterns in nature. I enjoy taking a pattern, abstracting it, repeating it to the point where it becomes a derived conception of its original inspiration while still celebrating the beauty of the natural element that influences it.

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!
