I wrote a poetic little “eye witness” account of a tornado and etched it into the band of this one-of-a-kind enameled ring. It reads, "The leaves stood, as if called to God." I painted the enameled catastrophic scene with powdered glass suspended in liquid and fired it with a torch to fuse the glass painting to steel.
This piece is part of my Tiny Catastrophes series, a collection of limited edition, one-of-a-kind memento mori pieces that explore the fragility of life and our desire to prevent, explain, and control the uncontrollable.

My blizzard ring, "Abandoned" is available for purchase online, along with several of my other pieces, at the @metalmuseumstore website. The ring features my one-of-a-kind enameled scene of a car buried in the Ohio Blizzard of 78.
