Designed with a paneling process that covers a solid 1/4″ core, this piece was created from an assemblage of 1/8″ salvaged wood slabs. With a construction technique more akin to collage, I hope to create visually dynamic fields and continue to explore this methodology on future projects.
Re-purposed Wood mini-Planter 5″x 3″x 6.5″ This piece was made from a salvaged wood print & illustrates the kind of reclaimed material I try to source, old weathered materials that possess a quality you can’t mimic. I tried to let the incidental shape of my source material guide the design, and am open to letting the materials at hand shape how they are re-purposed.
PATTERN MAKING From laser etched coasters to intricate screen-printed designs, I will continue to explore possibilities of pattern-making across mediums. I strive to create patterns that are subtle yet dynamic, vibratory visual fields where the eye has plenty to bounce around in. Interested in creating your own pattern? It all starts with a fractal. I can help you create your patterns via screen-printing or laser etching.
The latest in a series of salvaged panel planter boxes. Measuring 6″ wide 8.5″ tall & 4.5″ deep, it’s designed as a wall hanging planter that you could just as easily place on the ground. The bottom drainage is polypropylene fabric whose permeable surface facilitates quick drainage & helps curb moisture levels.
This is a Douglas Fir iPad stand. It’s equipped with a lazy susan for spin action, pitched at a slight angle with a reinforced neck, and snugly holds an i-pad. Designed to be solid yet streamlined, I wanted to make sure it looked nice from any angle, while providing enough protection so as not to leave one’s iPad too exposed to any potential hazards in the work environment.
A laser etched, wall-mounted, business sign/planter box. Constructed from mahogany & features a ‘black eyed susan’ flowering plant, growing along the guide line to eventually circl the channel of the frame. I chose mahogany for it’s open grain, rich warmth & relative quietness as a grain. The laser etched logo was left unfinished (and meticulously sanded) to preserve the quality of the exposed grain.
A collection of laser etched coasters made from glyphs & original digital illustrations. This is the first batch hot off the epilog laser engraver, there will be more to come. Each is 1/8″ thick multiply with a natural rubber bottom piece to prevent slippage. All are unfinished with a preference for the natural tone of the grain. These lightweight & stylish coasters can be sold individually as well as in […]
This 4oz flask is molded with an African Mahogany veneer. It has been sanded and finished with Bioshield Aqua Resin Stain Finish, a no VOC environmentally friendly water based finish. An incredible amount of minutiae was necessary to complete this stylish project. I will continue to explore other suitable non-threatened wood veneers, such as Ziricote.
