I'm enamored with act of creating something beautiful from raw materials, using only my hands and a hammer. Something that will last lifetimes, be part of someones cherished story is an honor beyond words.
I've always made things, sewing paper making, glassblowing but never stuck with just one until I found metal. The challenge of doing it well along with the craftsmanship and techniques passed down for generations was what got me. With metal I can convey emotions or a moment in time.
"The sky was like beaten metal. The air was pure and heavy, like cold water" - Cecilia Holland
The moment when the perfect temperature of wind blows off the ocean, or the joyful giggle of my son...that's what drives to to make things.

I design my work to last lifetimes. Each piece is hand made in my Westport, MA studio by myself and my amazing assistant Kris. All of my raw materials and packaging are sourced locally, recycled and reclaimed whenever possible.
I believe the thoughts, energy and intention put into things are carried with it. Metal vibrates at a certain frequency, as all things do. With that philosophy each piece is thoughtfully handcrafted so it will last generations and tell the wearers story long after it's been passed down.
