A silversmith who follows his own intriguing drumbeat, and creates marvelously different, meticulously crafted pieces. His characteristic exacting workmanship and very personal style are both evident in this abstract dragonfly pin.
There are several techniques here: the wings are tufa cast, the body is a series of half round beads, graduated in size and fixed to a solid base of silver. Each element is stamped with the artist’s signature dot arrangements. The cylinder at the top represents the dragonfly’s eyes.
Creative, arresting, fascinating design and precise execution in satin finished silver. The motif represents traditional good luck, but the fulfillment of the artist’s idea is totally contemporary and fascinating.
