The gold is within our view, but not our touch. It glows through the glass. I like playing with refections and contrasts. In the deeper bowls, 23k gold reflects off itself on opposing surfaces and intensifies the luminous glow the gold. I like to juxtapose the glowing interiors with textured or organic exteriors. On other pieces, I am driven by my love of patterns. I like using a variety of colors metals with classic and timeless design elements for objects that are functional in the modern word.
