The frame of this sturdy coffee table is made from rolled steel bar and square steel stock. The layered circular shelves are filled with organic metalwork created from hammered and rusted steel rod, hammered copper panels, textured brass, glass, and distressed oak. A heavy 30 x 50 inch safety glass top rests on the four padded legs. At one point the table had a curved wooden side panel which was later removed.

A friend gave me an old brass trumpet. The valves were busted so it didn't play. I don't play trumpet anyhow, but I was interested in the metalwork, so I sawed it into many pieces. I created some of my own new parts, the bent elbow pieces that make the corners, and silver soldered everything back together into this new compact trumpet design. Still does not play.
This copper and brass funeral urn has two inner vessels, for husband and wife. In this case the majority of the ashes were spread ceremoniously, and a small amount were saved for the small canisters. The texture on the copper is hammered in, the layers are plasma cut, stacked, and silver soldered together. Hammered Copper Funeral Urn
The lid to this brass box was created with the process of repousse and chasing. It slides into a hidden track along the top edge of the box, and it's quite challenging to figure out how it opens. The brass was darkened with a patina and buffed with fine steel wool to create highlights.
This box was originally created to hold my repousse and chasing tools but was later sold to a puzzle enthusiast. The box, puzzle panels, and hinges are brass and the rivets and puzzle frames are copper. The oversized hinges make the box feel very solid when opening and closing, and were initially designed to support the heavy repousse tools inside.
