Those who know me know that I have a passion for the arts, photography is one of those passions. When I was in Vietnam in the 60's I was stationed in Saigon. I had a rare opportunity to see and be a part of a Vietnam that most Americans in country were excluded from and had no idea that it even existed. When I had time off I often ventured into the city to shoot photos of the architecture and of the people. I have hundreds of photos and slides that have been sitting on the shelve for years. Mary Lynn and I have decided that it's time to share those images with those who were there and those who are too young to remember. These photos are not about the war but about an exotic city and her culture. To this end we are editing the photos into a coffee table book and hope to find a publisher soon.

I have neglected this site for so long that I can't even believe it. Months ago I posted pictures of the start of a wagon wheel chandelier. I was determined that it wouldn't look like anything else on the market. Everything was custom made including the wagon wheels and the glass. When I ordered the wheels I had to convince the wheel wright that what I was ordering was what I wanted. There are three tiers of wheels and glass and everything had to be perfect in order for the fixture to go together. They weigh approximately 500 pounds and by the time they were crated we had barely an inch of space to load them into a semi trailer.
I should add that I made three of these and they all fit in one room. All parts were designed in the studio and fabricated at various places.
