Recently I was able to work on a really great project with Vancouver/Luxembourg artist Mike Bourscheid for the 2017 Venice Biennale. He made a number of elaborate costumes for this exhibition and commissioned me to create a ceramic vase helmet for the costume he wore during the opening reception. It is a two part vase/hemet--the top portion is recessed into the bottom section, and the two halves are held together by a leather belt.
Below are images and information about previous projects.

In January 2015 I completed a lighting project for Vancouver's second Tacofino location (15 West Cordova). A well known taco hot spot with locations in Tofino, Victoria, and Vancouver, Tacfofino is renowned for their incredible food and design. Along with interior design and colourful string globe lights by Shiloh Sukkau, eight ceramic 'MOONY' fixtures (white), and 16 terracotta 'PINATA' fixtures (red), hang over the bar and mid section of the restaurant.
In 2006 BOCCI, a Vancouver based design company, commissioned me to produce ceramic bowls for a table series called 17. These tables were designed by Vancouver based architect and designer Omer Arbel, and were one of the many features in his 1000 beach penthouse project. Empty pools were formed into solid walnut tables and were then filled with porcelain bowls in black or white. A large dinning table and smaller lounge table were fixtures in the penthouse along with many other original designs by Arbel. The marble tables followed later as a separate project.
Later, in 2007 and through to 2009 I was commissioned to create the ceramic component of BOCCI's 21 series pendant light. Over the period of those two years I produced just over 2500 of these porcelain shades in black and white. BOCCI continues to manufacture these incredible lights in larger quantities along side many other beautiful designs.
