As a metal-smith

I am drawn to industrial debris

as others are drawn to pirate's treasure.

Utilizing salvaged copper and

exotic scrap, I specialize in creating

unique sculptures and vessels,

incorporating riveted

and woven surfaces

with etchings and hammer marks

to reflect the work-worn

origin of the materials.

My art invokes the

unexpected re-birth

of cast-off materials into useful vessels reflecting the necessary interleave of nature and industry.
