Spirit Chasers are giant wind chimes that can be used as screens, room dividers or abstract dimensional hangings. They are made from bullet riddled propane tanks and salvaged metal found in the Mojave Desert. The wood hangers are made from Smoke Tree, Tamarisk, Manzanita, Acacia, Palo Verde, and other woods that have dried on the desert or mountain floor.
It is said that Guanyin is Buddha taking form as a female to show that Buddha is not male and not female.
chollaBowls© come in all sizes and multiple variations. When a cholla cactus has died the needles and skin dry out.

Cholla bones are sculptural in nature and my arrangements are inspired by the the furniture and art of the mid-century Brutalist design movement.
