About the Designer:

Brian finds his inspiration from things around him - much of which comes from dealing with international struggles. He served for 8 years with the United States Navy on active duty and had the honor of serving on two deployments; the USS George Washington and again on the USS Harry S. Truman. During his service, he visited countless countries around the world and had many great experiences which greatly influenced his artwork. 

The main reason that Brian is part of the maker's movement is all about creative expression. For example, Brian utilizes upcycling as one of his design methods, where he sources used leather, belt buckles, and other findings as a medium to create belts. Though a sustainable way of sourcing, Brian's design process is even more refined in that he uses a leather burning tool to carve unique shapes and striking designs into each tailored and thoughtfully created piece. 

Brian is also a master ceramicist, creating each stunning piece by hand. Leaf bowls, plates, wind chimes, candles and candle holders - all hand carved, painted and glazed to perfection to creatively express his art.
