Improbable Creations

I strive to create an experience with metal that is unexpectedly organic, incorporating natural asymmetry and playing with entropic states.

My passion is creating objects that defy traditional perceptions of the nature of metal. Metals are not static, but organic and transient. Steel rusts into dirt, bends like the wind, breaks like an old tree and even shatters like glass. Apply the right heat and it shapes like clay. Coppers grow crystalline patinas like moss. Foils crumple like leaves. This is the nature of metal I hope to bring to objects that can be experienced.
