1971-Present: Self-taught as a Goldsmith

“I am self-taught as a goldsmith. Reading about goldsmiths from the past and the present has linked me to the traditions of the ancient craft. An early friendship with Ludwig Nickel, who had trained in an Austrian monastery, put me directly in touch with the traditional techniques like rolling metal and alloying gold. I would sit for hours watching him work, listening to him talk and asking him questions”
