My work is inspired by a combination of industrial structure and organic form. I enjoy working with minimal geometric forms; recently I have been adding texture to my pieces using a technique known as granulation. Each small silver dot is individually placed onto the surface of the piece. The surface is then heated up to a high temperature until the dots are fused, leaving a texture. This gives the pieces in this collection an organic quality and makes each piece its own
