As a maker my first interest is process. The drive to make objects is to experience the growth and transformation of material into form. Explorations in the morphology of organic form and a direct connection to the material through traditional metalsmithing processes are the vehicles for the generation of form.
Not fully abstract these forms evoke biomorphic, zoomorphic and anthropomorphic references. Empirical analysis of the natural world and a reverence for the beauty of organic form and structure are the inspiration for this work. My intent is to create objects through process, intuition and a direct relationship with material that evoke the mystery and sensation of life.
