Artist Statement

It is not as important to design and build something that is merely different. What is important is to design with an unambiguous intent inspired by something personal to the client. The final work will be functional art and offer to the viewer something more rather than something new. The end result is a one of a kind piece.

In sum, what his techniques accomplish is the creation of an amalgam which expresses the relationship between creativity and material.
