steel, automotive paint and patina
52″l x 26″w x36″h

I’ve started using the color in the same way I used abstraction – as a carefully filtered sampling process.  Gathering together images, conversational descriptions and objects I get a feeling for how a color lives with us and use it to create a feeling, an atmosphere of recognition.

Anchored Candy no. 5

Anchored Candy no. 5

2013
formed and fabricated aluminum, steel,patina and automotive finish

84"l x 27.5w x 34.5h


Commissioned for the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Art in Boston to be a part of their "Please Be Seated Program."

Is it Green? This finish was especially exciting. depending on what angle you looking at the bench it shifts in between green and blue. In the compound curves it is pretty exciting, and hard to catch on camera.

If you are ever in Boston, go and visit it at the museum - the "Please Be Seated" program allows you to actually sit in it as well... enjoy!

Desert Impressions Bench no. 2

Desert Impressions Bench no. 2

Made in 2015, 17x60x22 in, cast concrete and Stainless Steel

These are the first experimental products of the Desert Design Lab project, which was supported by the John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship in 2014. The project traveled across the country for two months with an RV trailer (a mobile studio) spending extended time in remote desert landscapes/eco-systems to gather images and textures in developing my Desert Impressions work also inviting a handful of artist/designers/writers/craftsmen to collaborate with me in these locations. This bench was made by casting a cracked desert texture into a rubber mold and recasting it in concrete with stainless steel.
