New York, NY

My father’s N.Y. sheet metal shop was in our backyard and my sister and I were free to bend, cut and rivet in different metals as long as we avoided becoming an obstacle. Today we make our buckles and various jewelry components in lost wax; ultimately casting them in silver and brass, there by creating our own shape library. I hope our compositional mix of materials and forms reflect the rich hands on opportunities I inherited from my father's family.
