Motorcycles, Dogs & Battleships

On a cool, foggy, October morning in San Francisco, I attended the formal commissioning ceremony of the new U.S.S. America (LHA6). I was invited because the ship’s captain, CAPT Robert A. Hall Jr., and his officers, had commissioned me to create a commemorative brooch for the vessel’s sponsor, Mrs. Lynne Pace. My design features miniature sculpted […]

Scribbledog Goes to the Beach: Santa Cruz~2014

But the hilarity and surprise of this month’s shoot on a popular pooch-friendly playground made it my favorite so far.

ArtMath Back-to-School Pop-Quiz

Sometimes abstraction feels like math. Not the classroom snoozing, painful-as-scraping a-chalkboard kind of math…but the game-like, geometric puzzle solving, brain teasing type that I enjoyed before BC Calculus came along and silenced every number-2 pencil in the room. The tactile challenges of simplifying and resolving a tangled maze of complex curves is akin to solving […]

ACROBAT Springs off my Workbench

Modular design is a process I first experimented with in my jewelry collection (i.e. Kimbra, Double Kimbra) as a way to explore the morphology of my most complex, geometric shapes. ACROBAT is the second modular sculpture spawned by Nautilus.
