My works goal is to integrate natural beauty with the simplicity found in modern form, while riviving the fine art of modern studio design.
Respecting the traditional methods of wood working, I involve modern shapes & processes in my colection. My design inspirations come from nature herself. Her sensual, fluid movements speak through the organic shapes & lines discovered during the creation process.
My commitment to quality craftsmanship starts with the selection of premium woods, which are laminated into various shapes & sizes. I then invest hours on hours sculpting layers of wood while including elements such as concrete, metal, and glass to reveal visually pleasing, funtional handcrafted furniture.
My first creations were crafted in my grandfather's wood-shop where my grandfather, a retired cabinet maker, taught me traditional techniques. Years of learning and inspiration have translated into beautiful heirloom furniture.
