For more than 40 years, my passion and means of expression have been centered on the endless potential available in forged metalwork.
Currently my work is focused on the melding of the skills, processes and craftsmanship inherent in traditional blacksmithing with the creative joy of producing new works
influenced by nature and technology.
Striving to create art that changes its environment while fulfilling its functional and artistic purposes, I interact with the client and knowing where the work will be sited allows me to design a solution that is both cost effective and esthetically correct.

We have bee hives, grow an extensive amount of garlic (Carpathian is our favorite) and the garden grows of out bounds on a regular basis. There is an orchard and we and friends make gallons of cider every fall. It seems the earth here provides well and we have some produce for sale in season.
Our acreage is certified Salmon Safe; all facets of our activities have no adverse effects on storm runoff and hence the viability of salmon runs in the Northwest.
