i believe i'm in a period of transition. as I move around and see the things to see, I find that my former work of making furniture seems to fall a little flat as compared to my intentions for it. i am a maker of things, which will never change. my respect for the weight and authenticity of the handmade will never change. however, lately my coercion has turned inward which has led to both a bettering of my immediate surroundings, and an insulation from the rest of the world. just furniture isn't applicable for me anymore. as i am now, i have reserved to making only for friends and family, never for sale. i freelance a bit, but only my drawings and thoughts are exchanged. my website serves as a record of what i have done, and i need to add a few more recent things, but most of those thoughts are gone. i'm focusing on a huge project of my own living space in an attempt to emerge with reconstituted purpose; but for now, i am resigned to observation-in-waiting. more will come soon...

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!
