CHILDHOOD FAUCET was made of domestic hardwoods and the water like puddle was carved in Plexiglas. This piece was designed to instill that feeling of being a child and growing up on a farm. When sent out to turn on the water for the garden, the faucet seemed to be bigger than life and seemed to tower above the child as they struggled to turn it on.. A memory my client wanted to preserve in a work of art. CHILDHOOD FAUCET is 5 plus feet tall.
NYMPHAEA was commissioned by an East Coast couple for their master bedroom. The scope of the project was to create a nature inspired piece for over the master bed. The finish was to match the distressed decor in this eclectic 1800 historic home. NYMPHAEA was designed with a Corian ring that holds a hand-painted silk canopy created by Donna Karin. This canopy ring is between the leaves and the lotus so that the lotus itself can be viewed while lying in bed. This was a very rewarding piece to design and create. NYMPHAEA measures 48 inches at its greatest and is carved and burnished wood with 24K gilding that .
I was honored when a very loving husband commissioned me to create this music stand for his talented wife. EBONY & IVORY was designed with custom brass keys that could be pulled out in two places to adjust the height of the stand. Made of gorgeous exotic woods from ebony to vermillion to holly to zebra wood. She still enjoys it to this day.
