You can say that I make the antique pieces I never find when I go out “picking”. I kinda wish there existed a style that had intersected Sicilian Baroque, Mexican Art Deco, and Japanese Mingei, but it does not exist, so I had to make it up. Rusticity and flamboyance, really domestic, rural, pastoral aesthetics, not trying to be “good taste”, instead trying to “taste good”.  I work with the same families of the best craftsmen in Michoacan and Guerrero, Mexico for the past 20 years, and instead of trying to impose “Design” on the situation, I allow regional “Charm” to impose itself. It’s alot of fun. These are all influenced pieces, in the end.
