ideas come from nature, and my work has always made reference to
some aspect of the natural world. My pieces of jewelry are elements
of landscape whether the observer recognizes them or not. The references
are through the surface, color and shape of the metal. I twist and
bend the surface of the metal or hammer it into tree limbs or rocks
or color it with the use of electrical currents. Some materials
are evocative of riverbeds, bark or twigs, while other shapes recall
crevices or enclosures in rock formations.
common theme in my work has been the development of a sense of place.
Whether it's jewelry or hollow ware, whether it's the Southwest
or the Northwoods or Japan, my work is a response to something I
have taken from travels and distilled from the memory of the experience.
