I've been working with concrete for over 35 years. Years ago, I joined my love of Japanese gardens with my love of concrete and began casting Japanese lanterns and other garden sculptures from molds I custom built myself.
Following that, I began to specialize in bas-relief tiles, wall hangings, and geometric shapes. I like working in concrete because of its unassuming raw texture, while at the same time providing a reassuring feel.
My work is heavily influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, Buckminster Fuller, Arman, and Art Deco architecture.
Many of my pieces are cast from handcrafted molds made of plaster, wood, rubber, and found objects. Concrete allows me to embed glass and found objects to create new and unique pieces that challenge typically-held beliefs regarding what is art.
My focus is on elevating mass-produced objects to celebrate industrial designers who have created artistic pieces that are often overlooked.
