People started asking me to use my skills to make things for them that were more utilitarian. For a while I resisted, seeing this as a potential distraction from my work as an artist. However, a few clients persisted, and I produced some furniture with the same care I took in making fine art. To my surprise, the process was not a compromise at all. On the contrary, I found that I enjoyed working within the parameters that the projects defined. I continued to accept these commissions and eventually chose to focus on them exclusively.


I now apply my skills to a great variety of projects. Not all of them are art, but I maintain an un-compromised devotion to craft in everything I do. From a simple repair to the most ambitious sculptural commission, my goal remains the same: an elegant design that efficiently utilizes materials to create something that remains beautiful forever.
