Maybe it was just coincidence, but I discovered the fun of working with steel just as my hair was turning about the same color… imagine that!

I feel energized working with metal and learning about its possibilities. As I combine this material with stone, glass, or wood I hope that the result helps to inspire a feeling of Joy, Playfulness, and Hope.

Part of the fun of working with these materials is that it isn’t always apparent what is going to take shape – but whatever the result, my wish is that there will be hints of the wonder, awe, and joy that can be found here on the Door Peninsula.
