Owen's designs are unique and are influenced by what he sees around him in the everyday. Most ofit is influenced by nature; above ground, in the skies and below the seas! Collecting flotsam on a beach or seed pods in the park for unique treasures is a favorite pastime of his. Urban centers and architecture also play a significant role in what he makes. Shape, color, texture, content, material composition and position, are all important to him, whether it's a tall building or a tiny pebble on the beach.
