I am a one man studio woodworker. I work in a variety of scales and types of work with wood but mostly studio furniture. My work is typically sold through art galleries but I also do commission work as well.
I typically work with hardwoods of exceptional figure and character. Aside from furniture I also make unique jewelry furnishings and boxes and I turn wood and create sculptural forms. I was the 2007 NICHE Award winner for Turned Wood.
Should any jewelry artists at Crafhaus know of clients in need of unique Jewelry furnishings or boxes I would welcome referals or work with you in collaboration.

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!
