Fire Water

8.5” x 9” x 3”


Fire water, made from linden wood, cherry, copper with steel nails and leather, is burn textured and colored with gilders paste. The drinking horn was common among norther European tribes at least as far back as the early 800’s a.d. My interpretation of this ubiquitous item is titled ‘Fire Water’ the copper flames and water theme textured into it represent the spirit of the lives of these nomadic warrior peoples.

Gaelic Revelry

6″ x 7″ x 2.5″


The era of early ninth century Northern Europe where tribes lived on the edge, fought hard, and celebrated even harder was my inspiration for this series of Celtic drinking horns. The pattern of everyday life etches itself on the faces of these rough and tumble warrior peoples, as I have etched the pattern on this vessel. Every man had his auroch bull horn which he used to wash down the dust of the day and celebrate the highlights of life. The elders and Chiefs would have had their cup ornately decorated to show status. This patterned cup depicts the lineage and accomplishments of its owner.
