non prescription sildenafil citrate His work tends to be quite varied (basket weaves, beaten metal, recycled art, etc.) and the inspiration comes from various sources. Mann’s prime motivators are material, process, geometry and nature.

He says, “These show up with alarming regularity in my work. But I don’t subscribe to any particular formal style or language, and my work in bamboo looks very different from my work in metal.”

Says Mann, “I would like my work to be as hands on as possible and made by me. This is not always so, unfortunately. When I’m working with a particular craft there is at first a period of learning and absorbing. The next stage is synthesis and expression.” Mann’s work is well recognized among several international retailers. Among his most regular clients is Driade.
