The challenge of producing something uniquely distinctive is the most satisfying. My original creation is wood cloisonne where metal wire is wrapped around the inlays. My specific vision is in the design, ancient forms with a modern twist. Mother nature brings her part, the beauty of wood figure. My part is to use the vessel as a canvass to inlay designs and introduce elements that nature never intended. Then there are the gray areas, in which, the viewer asks, "Is this natural or did you do it?"
