The Wheel is a seven foot tall sculpture made of cardboard: laser-cut, folded, and assembled without glue. It goes places indoors or outdoors—it’s very lively in the wind—but it is also at home in a gallery or a studio.
The Wheel was designed to be reproduced as many times as anyone wishes. Please contact me for pricing and availability.

Another in an occasional series of charcoal drawings of common objects drawn at life size.

This is scored and folded paper.
A bunch of early California poppies surprised me on a neighborhood walk one day: that luminous orange insisted on being celebrated.
A saltire cross is a heraldic symbol in the shape of a diagonal cross, like the letter X. It’s one of my favorite shapes, and it seemed to suit the poppy which has four petals.

A good friend commissioned this wall sculpture for his wife: she has a thing for glasses from the 1950′s and 1960′s. I styled it after typical mid-century city storefronts. I think the phrase “for Her” is funny.

I had been wanting to attempt this sculpture for years: a rectangular slab of sand in the tide line, pivoted slightly off its natural axis, with no trace of carving, no footprints. I got two quick photographs of it before the tide came in.
Two images of the sculpture are here.

Hotel Tonight asked me to create a set of liquor shelves worthy of the setting in their beautiful Market Street offices. I answered with hardwood, steel, and glowing sheets of mica. More images are here.

Desk.com wanted me to make something for their SF offices, something lively and playful using their logo. I suspended a couple thousand plastic discs in the shape of the speech bubble that appears in their letter “d”. When there is a breeze they ripple a bit. A few more images are here.

In April and May at Mike Page Style Lab in San Francisco, I showed a recent series of wall sculptures made from paper. They are inspired by traditional ornamental motifs from architecture, motifs which I exaggerated and cross-bred into cartoonish, hyper-pure mash-ups. The whole collection can be seen here.

A long rectangular disturbance in the sand at Muir Beach, California. More here.

A simple idea requiring thoughtful proportioning and a precise masking job. More cards are added as the company connects to more hotels.

If you inscribe a curved line into paper, you can bend the paper along the curve. I am playing with that technique to create paper sculptures that look a little like cartoon ornament explosions. More here.

I made a small modification to the tideline at Stinson Beach. I like how the removal of just 3/4 of an inch of sand reveals different patterning. I developed the idea a bit; more pictures of it and other sand sculptures are here.

Gray Whale Portrait 1984 Graphite on paper 26″x17″
Almost thirty years ago (!) I drew this portrait of a gray whale, after several whale-watching trips in Monterey Bay. The drawing, now sold after hanging in my brother Keith’s gallery in Bolinas, CA for the last twenty years, has resurfaced briefly into my view while I prepare to ship it away to the home of its new owner.

For a private dinner event in October I created a one-night-only tablescape of vellum and black speaker cones. More photos (including a long scroll of the whole installation) can be found here.
