Stop by, check it out and let me know what you think.  I’ll be adding more images soon, but as always, if you are interested in any of my work don’t hesitate to contact me through a comment.  Since I make multiples I may still have the print you’re looking for in stock.

A new fused glass relief print inspired by my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I’ve been thinking a lot about growing up there recently, since my wife and I are moving back in about a month. I can’t wait to be home developing an arts education organization and holding community workshops in both print and glass. I’ll keep everyone posted about our progress.

Have a great day.

Can You Hear Me

Fused Glass Relief Print

5″ x 5″ x 3/4″

I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but I’ve been working on a technique that combines relief printing and glass fusing.  This is the result.  It’s printed using glass powder on multiple pieces of clear sheet glass, which are then fused together to make an image /object the viewer can look into.  More to come, but I’m very excited.

Have a great day!

New Print Pics…. Finally

S0… A few months ago I came back from a winter residency at Penland School of Crafts and said I would post pictures of the finished piece soon.  Well… Life got pretty busy when I got home and I never got to it… Until now.

Since I got back from North Carolina I’ve also printed a number of newer pieces.  I’ve included a picture of one that was just featured at an exhibition here in Portland.

IMG_4257Just back from my winter residency at Penland School of Crafts.  I will make a full post soon, but wanted to share this exciting news.  Penland featured my work today on their blog.

I had a wonderful time pushing the limits of my work and meeting all of the other printmakers.  Thanks again to Penland, Diane Fine and Kathy Kuehn for giving me this opportunity.

Have a great day.

Great News!  I’ve been accepted into the winter printmaking residency at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina.  I’m really excited to spend two weeks in January working on a larger scale woodblock print, have access to state of the art facilities and meet other printmakers.  I’ll make sure to post pictures of my trip and my work as they both unfold.
Here is one of my newer prints

New Prints!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything, but I wanted to share some new works in progress.  Here are a couple of woodblocks I plan on printing this weekend.  My life has been extremely busy over the past year, but I hope to begin a more steady blog presence again.  I’ve also changed the look of the site and would appreciate any feedback.  Let me know what you think.

Have a great day!

Do You Think + Nice Hat

Do you Think

Nice Hat

I finished a couple more drawings recently and am pretty pleased with the direction they are heading.  The exercise itself of automatic drawing is such an wonderful thing, in that it allows my imagination to run wild at the end of a work day, or soon before I turn in for the night.  I’ve been finding that after longer sessions of drawing before I go to bed I have much more vivid and unusual dreams, which I love.  I’m still working out how a narrative can fit into the grand scheme of things, or if it should at all.  We’ll see.  That seems like something down the road.

The Panda Chronicles

Well, here I am, getting ready in about 8 minutes (give or take) to launch my Kickstarter project (as explained by Bob and Mehitabel) at exactly 12:01PM Pacific Daylight Savings time.  Why so precise on the time, you may very well ask?  It all goes to my theory of when people are on their computers more.

If you are someone’s employer, please stop reading this now.

I mean it.  psst…most people are on their computers checking kickstarter and twitter and facebook while they are at work.

Also, the way Kickstarter works, is that once you have set your start and finish time for your project, your project ends at the exact time of day that your project started: 24 hrs X however many days.  So, if you get all excited because you have been spending all evening till the wee hours (or in the case of the panda kindergarten…
