Architectural scales are used for the precise drafting and measurement of architectural drawings, including floor plans and orthographic projections. This 6 inch scale ruler features measurements ranging from 1/32 of an inch to 1 inch and was inspired by the idea that measurement is simultaneously precise and abstract.

2x Aluminum Mirror
Two distinct finishing techniques combine to create a sculptural reflection in the 2x Aluminum Mirror. Melding highly skilled hand finishing processes with advanced machining techniques, the 2x Aluminum Mirror is made from a single sheet of 1/4” Aluminum. The closer the subject is to the mirror, the clearer the reflection. Available through Assembly Design.

Designed for the Fall 2015 Areaware collection, Pedestals represent a class of object with versatile but ambiguous function, providing a surface that can be used in countless ways. The pedestal, with its very basic formal and functional requirements, lends itself well to a study of shifting scales.
The formal and structural simplicity of the Pedestals draws from traditional woodworking techniques — specifically, the lap joint, which is as humble as it is elegant. Available through Areaware.

2x Glass Bowls
The 2x Glass Bowls explore material extremes and push conventional boundaries in the realm of glass blowing.
To create the bowls, broken glass is incorporated into a glass bubble and through a repetitive process of heating, shaping, and molding, the once sharp shards of glass become blunt and sculpturally integrated into the form. Air is then inhaled through the blowpipe creating a cavity. The bottom of the bowl is cut and polished just above the glass gather line– where the molten glass accumulates prior to being shaped– honoring both skill and process.
