I founded Made on Earth Studio shortly after graduating from RISD in 1989. I continue to design and fabricate furniture, sculpture, puppets and masks and prepare for educational programs in my secluded rural studio. I hand-craft furniture using traditional joinery and enjoy working with locally milled hardwoods. Much of my lumber comes from historically significant trees.

For my sculptural pieces, I use a variety of media, including wood, metal, plastics and contemporary resins.

Virtually all of my work is commissioned.
