My metalwork has always been a vehicle for personal expression and my primary focus as a metalsmith is my interest in jewelry as a dimensional object. Each piece is meant to form an alliance with the human body, incorporating the human form, extending its shape and volume.

 

During the last 10 years my work has been an investigation of the creative potential of various technologies and materials. My current work incorporates silicone rubber. It is my intention to reveal the innate aesthetic and fundamental characteristics of this unique material and to engage the viewer in an evocative experience that transcends the material.

 

It is not my intention however, to give the impression that I am only interested in jewelry as adornment. My work is an exploration of form, intended to create a visually unique and personal experience. I am interested in creating pieces that work as well on the body as they do in isolation striking a balance between formal and expressive concerns.
