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.… Continue

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… Continue

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 Continue

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

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

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

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

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
