"My metal work is functional and created in sterling silver and gold with beads for color. The technique that I use could be called three-dimensional tessellation. For example, in a mosaic the design is constructed by arranging numerous pieces of colored glass tessari. Similarly, when I work in metal, I construct many small cut and formed pieces of metal to create 3-dimensional shapes. These constructions contain space, expose light and cast color by reflection."
