Eric has been working with Mokume Gane for almost 20 years. Drawn to the organic wood-like patterns, it is the primary material in his jewelry and the focus of his workshops. His goal is to teach jewelers and metalsmiths traditional and western methods of Mokume Gane and enable them to make it on their own. He has a BFA from Kansas State University and an MFA from Arizona State University. Eric lives in Maryland with his printmaker partner, Gretchen and his two dogs, Carmela & Javier.
