My work encompasses the creation of functional art with timeless design, and then captures it in copper or silver as serving pieces and tableware. Each one-of-a-kind piece is created by hand using traditional metal smithing techniques including chasing, planishing, repoussé, and raising and sinking of bowls. I have even designed some of the tools that I use every day. My studio uses the purest available copper, silver, and naturally shed antlers, all sourced from the USA. I like to think of my metalwork as the marriage of beauty and functionality, a quality that is becoming rare.
