When I first arrived in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas in 1971 I left behind a growing career as an abstract sculptor in New York City. I fell in love with Arkansas, the land and the people. Eureka Springs where I first settled was a tourist town and travelers enjoyed coming away with tokens of their visit. There was a very limited market for my kind of work at that time, I began to study the kinds of sculptural questions that occupied me in NY but in a form that would honor the market that was here already. I made sculpture that you got to wear: Jewelry. Impressions were made in molding sand and poured with silver and bronze. They were unusual pieces which, like my work in NY speak about intersections in space and time.
