Custom Deco Shoe Bench

I was so excited to present this one of a kind custom Deco Shoe Bench to my client. She was thrilled! This video shows some of the details I designed into the piece of furniture. It matches the architecture and style of my client’s period home. It will sit in the foyer at the top of the stairs. The sandal shelves are on the left, shoes go in the middle drawer and boots to the right. The boot box has a removable water tight tray. A top cushion will be upolstered. 60″L x 20″W x 20″D.

New Work for the Garden

Aluminum Bell with Stainless Accents

I love the details in this sculpture. I used various objects from my years of collecting. It was created using a fire extinguisher, laser cut drop, chain, square washer, vintage twist drill wood handle, stainless steel cable, plow disc and plumbing from my bathroom remodel. – 24″ W x 64″ H

Whirling Orb

I enjoy the variety of materials used to create this piece. There are found objects, plasma cut and laser cut strips of steel. It helps to add interest and texture to the whirling mass. – 40″W, 56″H on stand

Off Circle Orb

This is a one-of-a-kind garden orb. I found a laser cur drop and cut it up to create the sphere. I look forward to creating more by recreating the laser shapes and duplicating the process. – 30″W, 46″H on stand.

Art Deco Tree in it’s New Home

Update to the Providence Festival of the Trees 2016
Providence Festival of the Trees was a successful charity event that I was proud to be a part of last year. The steel deco tree I built raised $7100.00 for Providence hospital’s cancer services and research. Thanks to Artemis for bringing me in on the project. This client photo is of its new home in Hood River. Doesn’t it look perfect in that setting?
