“I Am Never Alone in My Garden”

Celebrating 50 years in Life and Art

“Our work has always been narrative in nature. That narrative has evolved very little over the 53 years we have worked together.

The garden has always been a source of inspiration and comfort. The garden has also become an allegory for a place in our minds that is rich in imagination, wonder, beauty, and privacy. Working together since we were 18, our minds blend as one and we like to say the work is created by the third person between us.

Pieces are fabricated from sterling, bronze, copper and gold. We are always pushing ourselves with technical challenges whether it is the scale of the piece, the delicacy of soldering tiny sterling ant legs to a bronze branch, or figuring out how to incorporate a found object that seems impossible to secure.

Our studio is filled with thousands of found objects collected since childhood which offer inspiration and provide the materials for our pieces. It may take years of looking at a treasured tiny cameo, found in a dusty corner of an antique store in the countryside, but when the time is right, it comes alive in our story. As we work with the cameo, we are transported to another time and place where time falls away and everything comes to life.

As we look at the pieces we have created, no matter what is happening around us, we remember who we are. They hold our emotions of longing, loss, love, beauty and wonder. We are transported to that intimate place we hold so dear. We are never alone in our garden.”
