I have a deep love and respect for the beauty of natural materials that is reflected in all aspects of my work.

I feel extremely fortunate to work with the most rare and beautiful materials in the world and I strive to reveal the unique character of each piece that I touch. While my main focus is sculpting fossilized ivory, I have carved, cut, polished and turned nearly every type of raw material on the planet, and I love to share these wonderful materials with others. This page describes some of the materials that shape my work and our world.
