“Having a desire to create things of lasting beauty and that bring glory to the creator of all things, I have produced these bronzes. I hope they bring you pleasure and joy. My work blends a love of nature and a love for people and cultures around the world. I also enjoy making work that appeals to the utility of craft yet is fine in its form.”
