With my work I try to represent the emotions in this world. The sadness, anger and the dark emotions that can’t be described by words. When I tried to shape those directly, it took the form of a person naturally. The pieces are not supposed to be practical tools but rather a medium to representing who I am. I craft those to grow closer to people’s hearts.
James Garvey suddenly walked into my store wearing a fireman’s jacket, an Amish hat and had soot all over his face. He pulled out a knife and asked, “What do you think?” What he had handed me was a hand-crafted letter opener. Ever since that day I have been an immense fan of his work.
