My Lamps and light sculptures are created from mostly recycled and upcycled materials; including glass, metal, granite and everyday items. I have been collecting interesting items for a long while with an eye to making something artistic out of them. I decided to start making them into lamps, as i love that combination of light form and functionality. Most lamps are built with light pipe and weight at the bottom for strength and stability. They are mostly one or two of a kind.
My vision is guided by balancing logic and structure with openness and improvisation. When creating these pieces I am improvising and creating similar to writing a song.
I live in Oakland, Ca. I grew up in New Jersey and have played with art since I was a child. Balancing logic and structure with openness and improvisation has influenced me as a musician and visual artist.
