The mandalas in this piece are cut from one sheet of 1/4" brass. Mahogany armrests accent the 1/4" brass arms which are recessed into the side and bolted on with brass screws and inserts.
The Sentinel (The Protector)
The Sentinel stands guard watching over those who are near. At 7 feet tall and 42 inches wide made entirely of concrete with embedded LED lights, stainless steel, and glass it was created with the intention of towering above. The armor-like texture was created from a one-of-a kind fabric formed mold. This futuristic protector has a shield like appearance, and it’s lights scan for danger!

The desk is a beautiful taupe color with 1/4" brass inlay designs and one of kind agate and ammonite. Whether you are drawing architectural plans, doing research , or just brainstorming you can't help to feel inspired and invigorated while sitting at this desk, hence "The Inspiration Desk".
Bioluminescent Portal Bookshelf
The Portal turns on its light to locate the intended person in this dark world. It is a sort of “searchlight” beaming, visible only for those alert enough to see it. There are several beings that create their own light often in environments where there is no other source of light. This phenomenon has different purposes, some of which are not fully understood. I understand fireflies attracting mates, or mushrooms spreading spores in a luminous way to attract pollinators, however my experience with bioluminescence differs.
My experience was that of transformation of my human body into a bioluminescent being. A feeling of strength that transformed my delicate skin into an armor able to withstand different pressures. I remember a feeling of connectivity to my own being and its current existence in another dimension. A sort of duality of living my life in this world we all know, and simultaneously living another life as a different being entirely.
Fabric Sculpted Concrete
Concrete wall sculpture with 1/4" brass inlay. This piece ways about 15 lbs and is 38" H x 25" W. The sculpture was created using a combination of fabric formwork techniques and hand sculpting.
The image below is during a 2017 exhibition for Chinati Open Night in Marfa, Tx.
A union of concrete and African mahogany harmonize to form the Marfa Consort Bench. This design was inspired by Donald Judd minimalism which is expressed through the durable craftsmanship of a concrete and wood medium. The shapes within the bench are a continuing theme in other sculptures and furniture pieces I have created. Each piece has a significant meaning to me based on sacred geometry and mathematical sequencing.
27"H x 24"W x 5"D
Antennary was created to emanate a playful and youthful energy. It is named for its antennae like brass rods. Both the pedestal and sculpture are made entirely of concrete. A one-of-a kind fabric formed mold was created to give it’s unique shape. I created this piece with my young son Ellis in mind who has a grounded and jovial personality. At such a young age he is able to block any negativity and transform it in a truly inspirational way.
This work of art is designed to hang on the wall and is 15"H x 48"W x 4"D. Hand sculpting and fabric forming techniques were used to create the shape of the concrete and there is a stone inlay in the center with channels flowing in and out from the center. Exposed aggregate highlight the ridges while dark brown textured concrete accentuate the valleys.
1" thick GFRC concrete bench with diamond design in the middle. The diamond design has stainless & agate inlays and the dark brown concrete is variegated to resemble natural stone.
Ojos del Alma
Ojos del Alma (eyes of the soul) is a hand packed GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete) concrete table base with a vein like finish. The sandy white color accents the inlays of agate, strips of glass and brass. The two encased lights illuminate through the piece itself and light shines from the bottom leg area, in addition to a top cut out display area.
This concrete table base has a truly stunning design paired with solid craftsmanship. If you are interested in durable and artistic concrete furniture, then this piece will likely catch your eye.
This sculpture was inspired by a lucid dream while camping at a primitive camp site in Big Bend National Park. The dream involved a sculpture which seemed to be alive pulsing light and its function was to send and receive messages from one dimension to another. The next morning I awoke to find mountain lion tracks twelve inches from the door of my tent.
The energy of this land is very powerful and mystical. Every time I spend time in this area I come back with very out of this world ideas.
The concrete sculpture in the photo was taken during the processing stage. Glass is embedded in the center of the waves and a beautiful agate is embedded in the center of the sculpted eye. LED lighting is integrated as well and lights the glass and agate bringing the sculpture to life.
