Someone once described Me as a creative manifestor, I like that, it sounds good. Many projects are always in the works. Watchmaking to date has been the most rewarding. Naturally a finished product is important but the process involved is a real kick too !.

Sometimes its nice to keep it simple.
Say...with Titanium and Black Alligator.

I'm lucky... what I enjoy doing I get to

also do for a living. I teach the craft of Watchmaking

at The Texas Institute of Jewelry Technology

at Paris Junior College

in Paris, Texas.

An American in Paris

I also have 2 home workshops to play around in.
The top floor was built as a sleeping room in 1917 and faces South with windows on 3 sides.
The light is great.

 

 

Some of the other projects in the works involve Jewelry and Metal Sculptures.

Both are unconventional...and yet, they work so well together.

Yea...I make jewelry also

Titanium and Silver Wings Necklace

Shown on a life size copper mesh body cast. This form

truly comes to life when spot lighted as it casts

what appear to be 3 dimentional shadows.

Hypnotic and Mesmerizing.......

Lately I have taken to making Knives.
It's hard on the hands but I like the end result.

Looking for Dinosaurs

Looking for things underwater is even better !
I love to Scuba dive.

During the day I spend a lot of time

looking through a 10X loop to see watch parts up close

At night I look through a 10 inch reflector telescope to

see large things a long long long way away

Most Galaxys look smaller then watch parts !!

Keep Looking Up !!

Keep Looking Up

 

 

Without a doubt My longest running way to enjoy time's passage has to be playing musical instruments.
Right now the Gibson Mastertone Banjo gets the nod most of the time.

Of course...the most enjoyable time is spent in the company of Laura. She's my very best friend, my favorite Scuba Diving Buddy and Fossil Hunting Companion and she also happens to be married to Me.
