ARTIST STATEMENT

My interest in metalworking began as a challenge to manipulate something that seemed completely rigid. I view my working process as a physical conversation with the piece. Each time I hammer, the metal pushes back. I’ve come to find that this manipulation of such a firm material makes the end result the most satisfying. Metal tends to read as something that will last hundreds and hundreds of years. Throughout history we can look back and see metal tools and objects created many years ago. This appreciation for the historical working of metal lead me to pursue the craft today.
