“The tension between opposites is a challenge to resolve, but when this tension is successfully balanced, electricity is generated in the hand and in the heart — it is an expression of the soul. When a maker knows who he is in relationship to his world, the object made with this existential awareness will carry this knowledge into the hand and heart of the user; with eyes closed essence is still apparent.
Everything I make must reflect my life, my philosophies and my love for what I do. I live and breath my work in every waking and sleeping moment. The object I make is what I am.”
