More About This Creator

Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"We work with many materials. Our palette is primarily cast-concrete, steel and Walnut wood. Walnut wood is probably my favorite, but only because it is the most forgiving. Concrete and steel constantly perplex me. I am fascinated by materials I don't understand."
