Mountain View Art

I have been diving for abalone for some 50 years and was excited to discover I could use the abalone shells for various art pieces. A few years ago, I collected more abalone shells combined than I had 50 years prior. Collecting them whole or broken with a 30-to-40-pound load and backpacking them up to my truck sometime three and four times a day. I have used a hammer and a 3,000-pound steam roller to crush abalone shells and polish them with handfuls of gravel in a cement mixer.

A several years ago, I built a wood shop / studio and am happy call myself an artist after retiring twice now. I do sell as a vendor in art shows when we can get approved for the competing art shows. I started re-purposing antiques, photography, making wooden ski coat racks and framing preserve flowers. I am available for custom projects. Call me if you have questions or want to sign up a group for you own art class. (858) 208-6505
