Coleus with Pink
Candlemaking is a science and an art. It can be tricky, exciting, spontaneous, meticulously constructed and magical. And I can now tell you that it's like riding a bicycle! After a hiatus of sorts, thanks to wonderful friends, I again have an operating candle factory. I am pouring my heart out in the studio this month and making some awesome creations, some of which are below.
Geode Crystal with Torquoise chunks
Just let me know if there's something special you want for your valentine, or a perhaps a treat for yourself. I'll be adding new candles every few days so check back often.

Where God was on 911: A tribute to the Survivors
6' x 5' Multi-Media Granite, marble, glass, pottery and mirrors
Completed December 2001
This piece was made with two mirrors representing the towers. That way, no matter who looks at the piece, their reflection, their culture, sex, shape, religion, ideology, etc. is represented in the towers. There is a yellow and red yin yang in the center of the explosion, the cross from a photo I saw of a church near there and the universal sign of peace in the top right panel. Wall street is crumbling and Ms. Liberty has lost her crown in the bay. I received an email days after that affected the piece greatly. It spoke of the thousands of people who were detained or delayed in getting to work that day as well as the many miracle stories of people turning the right way at the right time enabling them safe escapes. The piece is dedicated to the survivors.
$9,999 *artist note: I would love to see this piece purchased for a permanent installation in NYC as I lived on Governor's Island (700 yards south of Manhattan) while the towers were being built.
