My current work is an exercise in fancy exploring the possibilities of vitreous enamel on sterling silver and copper in regard to form, texture, color and its ability to mimic and play on other materials such as stone, fabric and organic plant life.

Most of my forms are made by micro shell forming and anticlastic raising exploiting the plastic quality of the metals.  Using these techniques I can make very unusual forms which are organic in appearance from flat metal sheet.  This is very useful in duplicating nature.
