My new Chicago Studio

I’m enjoying working in my new Chicago studio. It’s in an old wallpaper factory in an industrial area on the Chicago River. I have some colorful neighbors who are woodworkers, painters, metalsmiths.

Weekend Photo Shoot with Sadie

I had a weekend photo shoot with the lovely Sadie. Some of my new bigger pieces need to be seen on a body for a sense of scale. This new piece is vitreous enamel, oxidized silver and rubber.

Finishing rings for the “Put A Ring On It” exhibit at Taboo Studio Gallery in San Diego.

Rings are my favorite pieces to make and wear. This was a fun opportunity to try out some new idea’s.

Inspiration for the new year!

Lots of exciting new work in progress. I’m back in the studio preparing for the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore and the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington D.C.
