Lapidary Art: Artist Bio


Artists Statement

My work is a combination of traditional and contemporary designs. I believe in looking back to find inspiration in designs that have stood the test of time; drawing upon thousands of years of metal working technique. Each piece is hand forged, carved, and constructed with an emphasis on pattern and texture. I pick all of the stones from rough and hand cut them for each design, focusing on rare and unusual materials. The finished pieces have a heavy, solid quality creating a sense of strength and vitality for the wearer. I work intuitively from a primal aesthetic integrating the images of our modern world. It is along these paths that my designs grow and continue to evolve.
