Artist Statement

My silver pieces are made using precious metal clay, consisting of micro-particles of pure silver mixed with an organic binder.  After forming, the pieces are processed either in a kiln or with a torch.  After firing at 1650 degrees, the result is fine silver which is 99.9% pure, compared to sterling, which is only 92.5% pure.  I combine the silver with precious stones and organic materials.  My favorite stones include big baroque freshwater pearls, turquoise, citrine, and lapis lazuli.
