I want my work to challenge viewers/users preconceived notions of what a specific type of judaica should look like. Designs often incorporate cultural references, such as a Kiddush Cup with a stem made from LEGOS, or a Seder Plate dewigned as a bento box. Items must never lose n their functionality regadless of their appearance.
I began metalsmithing by taking classes at the Torpedo Factory, Alexandria, VA in the early 1990's. At that time I was working as an attorney on the Pentagon. A few years later and an important trip to Penland I decided to make metalsmithing my career. I attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison and received an MFA. I have been a full time metalsmith, student and maker, since leaving the law in 1997.
I currently live in Santa Fe, NM and specialize in the making of judaica. In addition to my practice I am an Adjunct Professor of Jewelry/Metalsmithing at New Mexico Highlands University, Las Vegas, NM. I previously held a similar position at University of New Mexico-Taos, Taos, NM.
