all of the work i design is made by hand from start to finish. it begins as a sketch and is then fleshed out using either wax or metal, depending on the desired aesthetic of the particular piece. upon refinement, the work is shipped off to ace castings in colchester, vermont where these diligent individuals modify techniques and devise solutions for my boundary-pushing designs. post- resolution, the designs are returned to my studio where the embellishment and hand finishing completes the process.
