“My designs deal with the interplay between structure and natural form. I begin my work by growing or collecting seeds, pods or buds, then I take impressions of these by using dental techniques. I use portions of these impressions or alter them, cast them individually, then use them as repeated elements by soldering them to various forged elements. I then use a wide variety of metalsmithing techniques to create the final design.
