The majority of the work revolves around Pattern Welding and expresses itself through knife making. I became interested in pattern-welding because of it's historical context and the infinite variations that can be created. Because it is such a specialized craft involving complex skill, I gain immense satisfaction in creating pieces that will reflect my unique vision. I enjoy the process of knife making as well as the challenge of working within its' confines. It's not always the finished product but the pursuit and the process that are important to me.
