My work with mortar and found materials has always been about repurposing non-traditional materials and elevating them through the use of classic design strategies.
Much of my work is meant to be held and played with, like some kind of fine art toys. My works have a quantum nature about them that incorporates elements of architecture, painting, drawing and sculpture. They are at once ancient and modern. They can be arranged and rearranged, offering infinite compositional possibilities and experiences. Viewed individually, they resemble rare objects that beg to be explored and appreciated for their intriguing depth and complexity.
