Revealing the intricate beauty of nature

Paramount to all the aspects of creating a piece is the union I make with the wood to reveal its inner essence.  It requires the sensibility to know how and where to work the wood, to hand sand and hand oil, knowing when it’s reached its potential.  What makes a piece successful is the artistic refining of a dynamic living object.  Each piece has its natural parameters, the bond between the natural shape and the artistic refining of that shape is purely emotional.
