"Klein und Fein" (German for "small and fine") is my motto. Contrary to popular belief, I believe that it is still possible to create good work by hand. I have never been able to understand why people feel that work created 100 years ago is superior to the work being created by artists today. After all, the equipment we have to work with now is much better than anything that was available to the artisan of years gone by. One has only to be willing to spend the required amount of time on the lathe. As a designer, I am always seeking out new possibilities and challenges. My work is always expanding by transforming these possibilities into reality.
