a picture called welcome to my mind should be here...


welcome to my mind

A portfolio is a window into an artisan's soul. It represents simultaneously their skills as a craftsman, creativity as a designer, ingenuity as a technician and, in the undefinable way that makes an artist what they are, their thoughts and dreams made real.

In many cases, the pieces shown are commissioned works, representing the realized dreams of the wonderful people who patron my studio. In that sense, these works also showcase my continual development in the role of collaborative maker.

As you peruse this constantly evolving collection, please do not consider it a catalog for ordering. Instead, see this as a beginning vocabulary in the language of my work; a lexicon you can use to help describe to us the things you have been dreaming about, but have not had the words to describe.
