Demonstrating at the University of South Carolina



Early in February I had the opportunity to conduct workshops at the University of South Carolina and Augusta State University. I wish to thank Virginia Scotchie and Priscilla Hollingsworth for the chance to work with some very talented students. I have many new thoughts and ideas that will be in the works as soon as I am able to get into the studio again after my upcoming surgery.…

Winter is gonna end. Right?

These are the things that are waking me up at 3 a.m.:

- moving into a new apartment in 3 days.

- show opening in two weeks

- the snow storm we are getting today that will keep me from running around the city which i absolutely NEED to do in order to get all this stuff done.

I have finished all but the last bit of the necklaces for the March show (just need to attach chain, but can't do that until i go…

Opening Night



Successful polymer artists Steven Ford and David Forlano's opening night presentation at Synergy mirrored their relationship. They easily bantered back and forth from opposite sides of the stage, building concepts in tandem and with good humor. They jibed each other about work habits and control issues while…

Lucid Dream Art

I went to bed as normal last night; meaning midnight and reached for my daily crossword puzzles, Sudoko, and switched on Criminal Mind repeats on ION. So there's another hour of awake time. Finally, my eyes tire and I'm ready to turn off the light and try to sleep. As an artist, sometimes this is difficult as I lay there and actually worry about

my art-making process. What do I have to do tomorrow? What are my

deadlines? What did I do to…

ECU Symposium

What a weekend! We had our long awaited symposium "Material Topics" this weekend. We had metals students from University, Appalachian State, Winthrop, VCU, and even someone from SCAD. Of course there were a ton of ECU people, even some from outside the metals department. We even had alumni and some community members from outside the university. I think our final count was up around 100 people!



The whole thing kicked off Friday night with an opening for a fantastic show between ECU… Continue

2010: Make it Happen

I have never made New Years Resolutions but i like the idea that sometimes all it takes for a fresh start is for a new year to begin. I need this idea because it gives me hope. It is comforting to think i can put aside a year of things that didn't quite pan out and can start anew.



So far January has been productive inspite of obstacles, but i have tried to see the positive or at least to not be discouraged (this has not come easily to me, and at times has felt like it is against the… Continue

Looks a lot like the Matrix...

Sure it does, but I really question the foresight of the Matrix developers when they created the iconic scrolling text. The best thing about my job is the ability to work on various cutting edge projects, whether for an entrepreneur or another research institution. Recently I was given the task of developing a virtual and physical model of the data you see… Continue

Timing is Everything

Before my current work and research into CAD and Rapid Manufacturing all of my time was devoted to hollowware and large scale sculpture. I am a certified ASME welder and offered such services as casting bronze and precision TIG stainless steel welding.

Here is an example of public work I fabricated. This is an memorial piece for the local Rotary International group of Sodus, NY. The memorial will have plaques of past Rotary members that have played and… Continue

What do I mean by success

How I define success has changed as the years have gone by, but here are the signposts of my various definitions of success:

2. My craft supports my creative urges.

3. I can make, via skills and techniques, whatever my creativity insists that I make.

4. My work (jewels) is enjoyed and WORN by my collectors.

5. My work pleases and inspires me.

6. My work keeps me young!

7. My… Continue
