I’ve always been drawn to copper for its flexibility. In creating fabricated sculpture, it provides a perfect match to my training as a metalsmith. Copper is strong, but amiable, bringing latitude to the fabricator for producing two and three-dimensional pieces. I enjoy creating organic forms in copper: tree and branch, birds, sea kelp and my red copper salmon. Working in copper personally challenges and always rewards me as I look for ways to express new design ideas.
Studio is open by appointment during the remainder of the year.
