|The carving is called St. George fighting
the Dragon. But what was really on my mind when I carved it, was a struggle between the Good and the Evil - the rider with his horse united as one (being) representing the Good against the dragon representing the Evil.
|The vision for "Storm" began as I was traveling along the Gulf Coast of Florida. I am fascinated by the way the water can change from dark blue-black with violent waves to a calm turquoise. The fading shades of blue and the slots spiraling upward around the vessel represent the contrast between turbulence and tranquility. The reflective properties of the ebony, combined with the high-gloss finish on "Storm" create an alluring effect, like the water's edge on a warm and sunny day at the beach.|
