We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

"Trilogy of the Rings" New pieces of organic work...Reticulation!!!

 Medium width band, 3/8 " wide, with the surface having been reticulated and the edges uneven to give a natural look to this piece.
 Wider width band, 1/2 " wide, with a wonderful texture made by heating the surface, cooling, pickling, and using a brass brush to bring the fine silver to the surface. Repeating this process creates a beautiful surface.
The thinnest band, 1/4" wide. This ring has the reticulated surface however rather than hiding the soldered seam I overlapped and soldered to create more interest.
