"I was inspired by the idea of using ordinary objects to make something beautiful and functional. I was driven by the idea of using design to take something most people would consider ugly, and change it into something stunning."

"The choice to use Leds was easy. They are small, energy efficient and inexpensive. Plus they have an amazing soft glow to them. There are 108 vials and led lights all individually wired."

STUDIO TOUR

I work in community metal and wood shops here in LA.
I also work from home whenever possible, but don't have a studio or garage!

I also made my walnut dining table and benches and it doubles as (the worlds most beautiful) work bench.
