Mechanization - Vol 2
60” high * 29” wide
I’ve been thinking about this piece since cogs got such a great reception (and sold at Beverly Hills in the spring), its intended as a twin for Monetization below. Its much more complicated than the original and the depth of work shows.
Lichtenburg Burning, Birch Veneer, Cogs, Epoxy.
Monetization Vol 1
60” high * 29” wide
I’ve been thinking about this piece for over a year, how to show money’s interaction with nature. the piece uses current and disused notes and coins, from a 1 US cent piece, right up to a 500,000,000 Zimbabwe dollar bill.
Some of my creative ideas, I am slightly scared of taking on because they may not meet the ideal I have in my head, this piece, when I finally overcame that fear, has turned out every bit as well as I hoped.
Lichtenburg Burning, Birch Veneer, Coins, Notes Epoxy.
The Break-up of Pangea - Vol 7
30” high * 60” wide
The Breakup of Pangea series extended into bigger, I love working on larger pieces of art, there is definitely something more that comes with scale. I’ve also started lifting the islands producing more of a 3D effect.
Lichtenburg Burning, Birch Veneer, Epoxy.
Islands in the Stream - Vol 1
32” high * 48” wide
“Islands” extends the exploration in the later Pangea work, with increased focus on profile, (the islands are lifted off the epoxy base, and epoxy color and texture blending.
The overall effect is meany to simulate islands in the middle of a swirling.
Lichtenburg Burning, Sande Veneer, Epoxy.
The Break-up of Pangea - Vol 4
29.25” high * 36” wide
The Breakup of Pangea series extended into new materials, with Walnut Veneer set against Copper.
I came back to this work to add Patina to the copper, finally finishing the work after a year or so.
Lichtenburg Burning, Walnut Veneer, Copper.
The Explosion - Volume 1
The Explosion is another expression of the blown fractal burning concept, radiating out from the focal point. It is fractally burned Sande wood on an aluminum base with a grey/blue epoxy infill.

The Bay - Volume 1
The Bay is my first multi perspective piece, from a distance it is an imaginary bay from a great height, up close it is much more tactile and smaller scale. Using a more complex blend of materials than I have used before with factally burnt wood, white sand, blended colors of epoxy and small sea shells from Morro Bay in California.
