“My work is created using contemporary metalsmith techniques.
My metal pieces begin as raw materials, typically sheet & wire. Those materials are molded using traditional metalsmith tools including mandrels, hand-files, flame & grit papers, as well as contemporary metalsmith tools including a flex shaft, rolling mill, texturing hammers & flame-enhanced via a propane/oxygen torch system. To incorporate color into my metalwork I use jewelers-grade resin. It’s a two-part epoxy that I pigment with acrylic paints, enameling powders & embossing inks.”
