I have been
an artist and craftsman for over 30 years. I offer custom and one of a kind works of artful furniture, fine and decorative art, custom design and building of cabinetry, and unique jewelry I make by cutting sea shell. You will see that this skill was learned by the need to cut specimens for inclusion in wall pieces and some of my furniture.
When I first showed tables that featured printer's type boxes,
the design writer for the NY Times included one in her article about the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. Today, there are over 60 examples in homes across the U.S. Many display a collection that I compose while others were made to display the buyer's collection. I recently added tables that allow for the addition of a printer's drawer which the buyer already has.
During the 1970-mid 1980's I provided custom work for the art world in NYC. Clients included Leo Castelli, Robert Scull, Christie's, The American Crafts Museum, other prominent venues and people.
I was a recipient of a grant from The National Endowment for the Arts and exhibited in several galleries. My work is owned by major corporations including Marathon Oil, Chase, Citicorp, Prudential and the Continental Group.
My work has appeared on Plum TV, talked about on Regis and Kelly, Ms Ripa owns a coffee table. It has also appeared in Newsday, The Dallas Morning News, several on line blogs, Architectural Digest, Antiques and the Arts, and East Hampton Star.
Several years ago, the award winning stage actress Elaine Stritch hired me to do her custom woodwork when she purchased a home in Sag Harbor. I have also made furniture for the wife, now widow of Sidney Lumet, the Oscar winning director.
The jewelry I make by cutting sea shell has attracted Museum shop interest. I offer it along with my furniture and other shell works at venues on the East End. I am amazed by the range in age of who wears them. Other than cutting and smoothing shells, I leave them natural. I minimize the bails and clasps in necklaces and earrings. The silver clasp or toggle used in the bracelets are more evident as a feature.
I offer quality workmanship, a strong design sense, wide range of capability and reasonable pricing.
