I grew up working with metal and patination. Starting by working for and with my father since an early age, I learned the many crafts involved in fabricating and patination of work in brass and copper. While working for him I broadened our techniques through experimentation and ingenuity, and have developed my own construction methods to fit my own styles and designs. More recently I have begun to practice foldforming, and to incorporate foldforming techniques learned in jewelry making into larger works. Both foldforming and patination emphasize working with the natural properties of copper and its alloys to create works which are a conversation between artist and metal. As in all disciplines, the very limitations of the medium create the most exciting attributes of the work.
