BuckleI designed this belt buckle after my favorite football team,The Seattle Seahawks.
Hand made from steel plate, welded the Hawk design to the plate and finished it with patina and a clear coat. If you want to be the envy of your friends get one of these one of a kind buckles.

Eagles Nest

"Eagles Nest"  July 4th 2012

This balcony rail sits on an old barn on Anderson Island Wa.  The view from the "Nest" has Mnt. Rainier the Puget Sound and the Narrows Bridge.  There are Bald Eagles that perch on a Pine Tree on the property.  This was my inspiration for this functional sculpture.  

Hand bent steel bar to look like branches intertwined to give it a nest feel.  The steel is powder coated a textured brown to give it a natural feel and look.  I added a frog on the top rail cap and a few steel leaves to add to the natural look.


I call this gate "inferno"
This gate I designed and did a custom patina to give it the look of fire. I wanted this to be a unique gate that fit together like a puzzle. It sits in the side yard of a beautiful home in Gig Harbor Wa. This gate is functional art that will be enjoyed for years. The patina will continue to change over the years, living art.


In November 2012 I finished these great sculpture designed by Lisa Kinoshita. We combined our skills to come up with these three great pieces. They are located at the Star Center in Tacoma Wa. "Sempervivum" The name of the Sculptures. I used a combination of stainless steel and mild steel to build these pieces. We wanted the patina to not get coated so it would change over time. Leaving the steel exposed to the elements it will naturally rust and patina to give these sculptures a unique finish.
