The idea for the Step Series came to me about two months ago while I read how almost daily in the Middle East ignorance and fanaticism destroy ancient artifacts of untold beauty.
Revisiting my old photos to look again at the sun-bleached marbles of the ancient civilizations strewn about the Asia Minor landscape, I realized that I could, in my own small way, preserve the marvelous, stark lines of these wonderful achievements of the people who came before us, by creating one of a kind pieces built with the same love of beauty and form.
The Step Series pieces in the images above are all available in my online shop. They are all one-of-a-kind, created with immense admiration and respect for the ancient makers and artists whose work inspired them.
In my own work they represent a step toward a simpler, well-wrought, meaningful form.
