These tables were made for private clients. I developed a clay body able to withstand extreme shrinkage stress, allowing for the forming of large seamless slabs.

José Rodrigo An old-school metalsmith from Madrid, the highly talented Spanish-Canadian José Rodrigo designed and hand hammered all the metal work. He had an impeccable, lyrical touch, and I am grateful to have known him, and to have made many collaborations with him over the years.

At the Canadian Craft Museum, the inimitable Sal Ferreras(right) is playing the "water drum" which we made in collaboration. When the metal rods are struck, they produce different tones depending on the level of water in the vessel. I am playing an Ududrum which I made using Neriage technique; one of the many types of instruments I made for and with musicians, both local and international.
