About The Art
Vegan Bike Tube Feathers
My art begins by gathering bike tubes that have had a whole life on the streets of Portland, Oregon. After two cleanings they are ready to be cut. Each Feather is individually hand crafted and paired with complimentary components.
Tree of Life Pendants
No two Trees will ever be the same. I start by forming a frame using tarnish-resistant or Sterling Silver wire. Laying the frame out on a pounding block, I hammer it until it has just the right amount of texture and strength. Next I create the Tree by twisting, forming and allowing each trunk to take on its own personal shape. I spend as much time on the roots as the branches because I believe that they have equal importance. Only natural stones are used as the leaves to give each Tree its own unique look.
