About The Artist

My workshop and forge are nestled in Northern Michigan in the Boardman River Valley near Traverse City. For many years I have crafted functional works of art out of metal, wood, stone and leather for homes, businesses and personal adornment. Each piece is handcrafted and one of a kind using as much recycled, repurposed metal and wood as possible. My wife and I collect the stones from the Great Lakes region and beyond. The range of my work includes sofa & coffee tables, storage trunks, sculptures & vases, handmade knives with leather sheaths, leather bracelets and more.
