San Mateo, CA
My design sensibility comes from years of training and practicing as an architect. I use shell-forming and anticlastic raising techniques. Thin, flat sheets of silver, gold, or mokume gane are slowly shaped into 3-D objects using hammers, stakes, and an anvil. The hammer marks left from forming provide beautiful textures which are contrasted with polished highlights. Being a LEED accredited architect, I use recycled metals whenever possible.
