This event is a time to introduce myself to the Los Angeles community — and introduce the type of work that I bring into the world. I am stepping forward into my work and opening to the ritualistic, sacred life it carries independent of me. My art stems from a single meditation. At age 16, I sat — and for the first time I died. I came to the edge of my universe and through it, into the infinitude of possibility. My creations are an attempt to capture that singular experience.
What inspires me to bring that moment into concrete reality are the mundane, equally powerful moments of everyday beauty: my son’s smiling face, gently kissing my wife, winding a piece of wire around a stone rhythmically. All of these evoke the simple, sustained meaning I receive to bring my art into the world.
My work assists in the transmission of SOUL-AR (of the soul) messages to the wearer. It helps the person wearing communicate with their divine spark. This is a totally subjective experience, and hinges on the degree of openness of the wearer. Depending on this receptivity, messages can be expected to travel both from the Soul, and to the Soul.
“I have never been happier hiring anyone. Trey’s work is an almost impossible combination of rigorous craftsmanship and divine inspiration. He interpreted the guidance that I gave him for a set of custom pieces in a more beautiful way than I could have imagined—incorporating everything I said, but entwining it with his own exquisite style, deep aesthetic, and playful brilliance in a way unique to each piece. The focused hours he pours into each item are reflected tangibly in the countless delicate wire wrappings at the heart of his style, as well as in the aura of devotion and beauty that surrounds every piece. I can’t wait to commission more, and feel blessed to have crossed paths with such an artisan.”
