UBC Law Building
Commissioned 2011

In 2011 I was sub contracted by John Peachy and Associates to fabricate 12 glass agate donor tiers, to be installed at the new UBC Law building.  The glass agates graduate from royal blue to deep green with rich tones between.  The architectural intention, between the concrete walls and metal fixtures in contrast with the lucid glass agates, is stunning.

This inlayed marble mosaic floor was commissionsed for an expansive private residence.  There is aproximately 400 square feet of intricate hand crafted mosaic marble inlay. I designed the pattern from architectural details in the walls, cieling and railings... with a twist of classic artdeco.  The work surrouds the master staircase, with two end features at the North and South ends of the home... with the circular detail positioned at the front entrance.

This mosaic dragon was commissioned by a local resident custom building a new home.  Lark’s dragon proudly faces out from the far wall of a walk in shower and is easily seen with spotlights illuminating it from within.  The detailing in the face and hands and the many colors in it the tale, make for an impactful and realistic image.  The bosai tree was installed in the main bathroom around a luxurious tub.
