Q&A with the Artist

Tell us how your work is made.

My work is primarily hand-carved wax work/cast and fabricated. I do all the stone setting, soldering, etc. myself and have done for 35 years.

What makes you passionate about the medium you work with?

I have always enjoyed working with my hands and I love the tactile quality of working with metal. I do not have a single style but rather a more playful approach to design. I like to challenge myself and create pieces that are not only beautiful but also interesting. I love carving a wax, I find it both artistically inspiring and relaxing. And I am lucky that I have always been able to visualize in 3D so I always know where I am headed.

What is something unique about you or your practice?

With an emphasis on color, weight and texture, I designs pieces that are modern in design, yet often include filigree and a unique use of open space. My pieces are bold and sexy, yet feminine too.
