Very excited to be participating in the Sculpture in the Garden show at the UNC Botanical Garden.  Lots of great art and a very beautiful venue.

Washer Bull

This bull is made from over 800 washers.  Each washer is formed with a hammer and a vice.  Each washer measures 4 in diameter and the overall bull stands at over 5 foot tall and 8 foot long.

Durham Bulls Baseball

Go Bulls! Durham Bulls Triple-A minor league baseball team that is. What a beautiful stadium and wonderful environment to catch a ballgame and hang out with your friends and family. I am honored that I will have my work displayed at the stadium for the 2015 season. Go Bulls!


The Pit, Authentic BBQ

7-13-14Laser engraved cutting boards for The Pit!!

Bamboo is very hard material and it is a good renewable resource. Here I have used my ShopBot computerized router to cut out multiple state shaped cutting boards. Using this type of machine makes reproduction of intricate cutting as simple as cutting a straight line on a table saw! Then using a laser engraver I took the logo from The Pit and burnt it into the top of the board. All of the boards are then sealed with a food friendly coating. I would love to have a rack off their ribs piled up on one of these boards right in front of me now!!

Pompieri Pizza

6-9-14Pompieri Pizza in downtown Durham makes some wonderful wood fired pizzas! Very excited to have my work displayed in this historic Durham firehouse.

Bull City Burger and Brewery

5-10-14Next time you are downtown Durham, NC check out Bull City Burger and Brewery. Very excited to have my project displayed here. Having left over washers from the earlier pig, I decided to do a trophy mount of a bulls head. Using the same technique of a foam mold to build around, this bull head was easily welded up and mold extracted.

I really admire how BCBB is run using all of NC companies for their products. All of their meat and produce is from local farms and their burgers and beer are just outright delicious.

Pigs Eating Ribs

This little piggy went to the market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way to Charlevoix, MI. Make sure you put this pig in a blanket before the snow falls!

Sideways Pig

3-22-14My favorite BBQ in town, so excited my piggy is hanging just inside the front door. Thank you The Pit!!
