Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
I have a very easy-going relationship with my students. They all know that they can look at the things on my bench, ask me questions about them, make suggestions and talk about any projects that I'm working on. They also sometimes make subtle little jokes.
After I've completed my current project (see below), I'll be moving onto a brooch entitled "Future Legend", which will feature a dog head cast in gold. In order to make the head, I bought a plastic toy dog, which was put…Continue

Finally finished my earring, "The Use of Ashes". I've been wanting to make this piece on this theme for myself to wear for almost 15 years and have finally done it! It didn't even take that long to make from start to finish.Continue

Should I have a business name? I’m stumbling and struggling on how to come up with a name.

I spent the day cutting out the stand for a bowl:
The bowl is not really practical as it has a skull in the base!
