I've working with concrete for over 35 years. I specializes in bas-relief tiles, wall hangings, and geometric shapes. I like working in concrete because of its unassuming raw texture, while at the same time providing a reassuring feel.

My work is heavily influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, Buckminster Fuller, Arman, and Art Deco architecture.

All my pieces are cast from handcrafted molds made of plaster, wood, rubber, and found objects. This piece is a one-off casting.

Concrete allows me to embed glass and found objects to create new and unique pieces that challenge typically held beliefs regarding what is art.

I like to use found objects to create fun and satirical art pieces
