I've been curious about neon for several years and recently found a glass studio close to my apartment in NYC. These are a few of the projects I've completed.
This hand-blocked grey melange fur felt fedora features 3" sloped brim and a woven nylon climbing rope hatband. The brim is sewn with a hidden pick stitch for a seamless finish. Sweatband is hand-sewn 1.5" signature orange ribbon for extra protection.
This cheese/cutting board is made from locally reclaimed Cherry wood. The brass knuckle inspired handle allows for hanging or for serving. Along the right-hand side of the board runs a stark line of sapwood giving the board a vibrant contrast. The sapwood also serves to highlight the live-edge finish along the side. Live-edge means the bark side of the tree is not cut away. Instead the bark is removed and the natural edge of the wood is sanded and finished.

This inflatable sculpture was created in 2011 and was my first time working with inflatables. The piece was large enough for two adults to walk around in the shell. The sculpture was made of 150 yards of semi-transparent ripstop nylon with interior lighting. The process involved creating a small scale pattern then enlarging it and transferring it to the ripstop. One of the most challenging parts of the process was sewing the sculpture together. The sculpture includes a hidden zippered panel for easy access into the interior of the shell.
Gastropod No.34 was featured as part of Figment NYC 2011 on Governor's Island. It was installed in the powder room of the now decommissioned Fort Jay.
