I find the challenge of combining metal and stone fascinating. Metals are malleable and ductile so they can be shaped, and even recycled. Stones, on the other hand, are brittle, and once broken, can never be reformed. Although each metal or stone has its own, intrinsic beauty, I am looking for combinations that transcend our preconceived notions of that beauty.   Bio
