Artist Statement

My goal is to bring kaleidoscopes out of the stereotyped hippie culture, and transform them into an art form. The beauty of form and color encountered inside a kaleidoscope is often hidden inside a simple container. My goal is to turn that container into an object d'art on its own merit, and reflect the beauty found inside out.

My kaleidoscopes will transport the observer into a different era, and create a sense of awe even before looking inside them. I use different kinds of media to create my work, including sterling silver and semi-precious stones, as well as cast brass lamp parts mixed with porcelain, blown glass and Swarovski crystal.

All the Swarovski crystal is hand applied, and the cast brass is aged using hand applied patina, and protected with natural wax. These heirloom objects are designed to withstand the test of time, and to be passed on from generation to generation.
