ORNAMENTAL ARCHITECTURAL METALWORK
Cook Ave., Port Townsend
I designed and fabricated various architectural
elements using mild steel with a blackening patina and clear-coat.
For the front of the building, I created the double gate, the
balcony railing, the column capitals, upon which the lamps are mounted.
For the spiral staircase, inside the
tower, I designed and made the handrail.

Eclipse Design, I
was primarily a designer and project manager. However, I
often performed other duties like fabrication and installation.
The following portfolio is a small sampling of the dozens of
projects that I worked on in my year and a half at Eclipse.
Waterbar & Epic Roast House, S.F.
These are some of the elements that I designed for Pat Kuleto's restaurants,
Waterbar & the Epic Roast House on the Embarcadero beneath
the Bay Bridge in San Francisco;
Fish-bone spiral railing and the louvres behind
(The glass has not been installed in these louvres yet.)

and the shelf behind it on the right.

Oxbow Public Market, Napa
One of the larger projects was a grid of galvanized
steel I-beams which define the retail spaces for the Oxbow Public
Market in downtown Napa. This is one of my drawings of
the overall scope of the project. It is essentially 125' long x
60' wide and contains 16 retail booths.
It is composed of various cut, drilled,
welded and hot-dip galvanized W6"x15# I-beams and CNC cut pieces of
steel plate. Due to the mass of the
structure, I had to coordinate between a certified structural
engineer and the architects to make sure that it kept function and
aesthetic and was also seismicly sound.
Clock, for the Oxbow Public Market, is CNC laser cut
aluminum with green neon illumination inside. The clock works
were made in Michigan.
Nixon Peabody Law Offices, S.F.
This is a tempered glass and
brushed stainless steel railing system
that I designed and installed for the Nixon Peabody Law Offices in San
Francisco. My CAD files enabled the glass to be CNC cut, which
saved hundreds orf man-hours.
