With spring around the corner , I find new inspiration in the nature that surounds my studio in the Laurel Highlands. Currently I am working on 3 jewelry cabinets that seem to have evolved much from this inspiration , and I await their finalization to showcase them...... Some of the most complex work I will have completed to date. Look for their debut in the near future. On another note the studio is growing with the warm weather with skylight and roofed wood/machine storage areas being added to the front and back. This should make life a little easier . So far the concrete and block retaining walls have been completed . The roof awaits, but at least the mud is no more. Here are two of the chests in various stages.

For the past few days I've been uploading video segments of a project I completed several months ago for the Wharton Esherick Museum's benefit and sale, Poplar Culture, coming up May 20. I am currently working on some commissioned pieces for clients, as well as some exciting jewelry cases/sculptures, which I am really enjoying creating.
