I use hollowforming and foldforming techniques to explore metal’s inherent qualities of malleability and transformation. From the forms that emerge I exaggerate, manipulate, repeat, and arrange in patterns to make wearable art that not only expresses my love of nature, but also illustrates much of the metal’s own true nature.
