Throughout my career I have enjoyed pairing the clever engineering skills of Man with those of Nature. These juxtapositions have always complemented rather than opposed one another. I have striven to find the natural beauty inherent in each form and reveal a relationship which in hindsight seems almost obvious in each example.
In 2007 I was commissioned by a wealthy Kuwaiti businessman to enlarge one of my signature pieces to monumental proportions. This process took a year and a half and involved many complex sculptural/foundry techniques and skills.
