I collaborate with architects, planners, galleries, museums, designers & developers to create large scale, unique sculptural forms and experiences for public, private and corporate spaces. 

INFLATE Series

Monumental Stainless Steel Sculptures

Renderings of a large scale series of pieces I've created for indoor or outdoor environments. These pieces can be fabricated in hammered stainless steel, or bronze, and are pictured here with a black painted finish. In stainless steel they can be finished in any color as well as have a bright, reflective mirror finish. In bronze they would have a bronze patina. I'm also interested in producing a series of these as smaller table size pieces.

INFLATE - Shoes Series

A variation of the INFLATE series with the theme / feeling of shoes. These shoes were made for walking, boots, etc. I like the idea of playful motion / emotion having a base of feet / shoes evokes. Hence, the INFLATE - Shoes series.

INFLATE - Chairs

Working on a series of chairs as part of this collection. Here's an initial rendering.

Babelfish. Conversations without Walls

This piece is for an installation on two sides of borders with walls. In each location a door shaped screen is installed that has what I call Babelfish or 'live' language translation allowing people that speak different languages to have conversations as though no wall existed, both physically, as well as from a language barrier perspective.  Of course people speaking the same language can use these doors to talk as well.

They can be installed in actual border walls - or in nearby locations such as museums or other institutions that decide to partner in the work, that are located in countries or areas separated by a border wall. Part of the outcome of this installation would be a documentary where we can witness some of the conversations and interactions that take place in real time in these settings. These events and the conversations that ensue are part of the ongoing dialogue of this piece.

SPHERE Series

A sphere based sculpture series. The spheres can be created in with various textures and finishes in steel or aluminum as well as multiple configurations that suit the space. In this rendering I’m showing a more earthy finish of textured steel. The scale and dramatic effect of this piece will become a memorable piece of public sculpture and truly help shape the character of the place it lives.

Riveted Aluminum Series

This series is inspired by the surface on airstreams. I fell in love with the surface, and the rivets, as well as some of the elements like the doors, latches, hatches and windows. I explore abstract forms with a similar surface. The other surface elements become metaphorical in this context. Initial ideas for this series include a teardrop shape, a form with tendril legs, and a banana.  Ideally a series of different shapes and forms would be made for one space, where they could co-exist and communicate with each other.

Tennis Series

New Tennis series of sculptures in the concept stage of a series I'm developing. These would be produced in 3 sizes, large scale (15 to 20 ft, interior design scale - 6 by 6 ft and table size). Colors will be in bright green and orange created in rubber and tennis ball felt. The table size pieces will have forms that are the size of tennis balls.

WAVE SERIES

This concept involves large tufted waves of material 'woven' over a structured under-framework. These pieces will have a fashion / high touch feel that I can see being commissioned for a fashion brand.

FORM POEMS

The imaginary life of forms captured as still lives. Objects of the everyday experience combine with forms born in the imagination to create form poems. The pieces shown here are what I consider material or object sketches, They're models for pieces that will eventually be cast in bronze with a matte black finish. These are currently available as commissioned pieces, contact me if you're interested in commissioning one. 

See more pieces from the series here.

Galvanized Geometry

This is rendering for a series idea I have of geometric pieces constructed out of galvanized sheet metal, merging planes and crystalline structures with organic rounded shapes, evoking a feeling of growth, something being born or formed from an inner impulse. I like the idea of creating large forms that are still light in weight. For an installation I would create a variety of freestanding galvanized sheet metal forms similar to what's shown.

BRAND ACTIVATION

LOUIS VUITTON'S ARCHLIGHT SNEAKERS PRODUCT ACTIVATION CONCEPT - In this concept I decided to make the Archlight Sneaker the main building material to create a series of objects, furniture and installations as part of a new product / brand activation campaign. More here.

Pause Series

Renderings of a large scale series of pieces I've created for indoor or outdoor environments. These pieces can be fabricated in hammered stainless steel, or bronze, and are pictured here with a black painted finish. In stainless steel they can be finished in any color as well as have a bright, reflective mirror finish.
