Twilight Fountain (Private Comission)

For this piece, I was requested to do something in the Art Deco style. After doing a bit of research, I came up with a rather quintessentially Art Deco motif. The name seemed to me perfectly old Hollywood, to suit the era. On each arm rests a half sphere which holds a candle, thus, "twilight." The symmetrical uprights are textured to reflect the light and cascade with a fountain effect. This piece will serve as a functional wall-table as well as candelabra.

Better pictures will be posted as they become available.

4'x5'x14" Steel.

Saw Tooth Ring

I could not resist creating an iconic Saw Tooth Ring. There is a tooth-texture on the side. This ring fits my thumb. Each side and edge has a texture.

2008. Sterling silver.

Swivel Top SOLD

The hinge of this box is a piece of 1/2" round stock which has been hammered at the top to create a large rivet. The stop is a traditional nail. The lid has scalloped edges. Swiveling the lid is satisfying because of the tight fit and heavy steel.

2008. Approximate dimensions: 6"x4"x5".

Hammer SOLD

An adorable child's hammer tops this little box. The edges of the lid have a hammered texture; fitting, isn't it? The hammer head is broken off of it's handle. Perhaps in a fit of creativity? The moment is encapsulated forever in the broken wood.


Self-Portrait in Bronze

These are images of some bronzes that I'm working on. They are sand cast. They are surrounded by the materials I surround myself with: things I collect because they speak to me on some way.
