modernist furniture using reclaimed stone and steel

I started my career creating sculptures from smashed guns, including a full sized coffin, illustrating the ultimate purpose of guns. As a self trained artist, I honed my metal working skills by developing a line of modernist furniture using recycled metal and reclaimed stone and wood. I use traditional patinas and modern resin dyes to finish and protect the metal. The finishes range from clear to a full spectrum of transparent colors, and patinas range from light pecan to deep mahogany. In addition, I design and create bent metal gates and fence panels in organic and modern forms.
