EVERY PIECE A
OF A KIND CREATION
Working with wood has been a lifelong passion. For over 30 years it has been a hobby used to relieve the stress in my life. I am now at a stage where I get to work at what I love. I love finding a piece of wood discarded in a ditch or a tree storms have blown over and making something beautiful. I get excited to take wood and put it on the lathe to see what lies underneath.
I have been asked what sets my work apart from others. My answer is I let the wood dictate what it wants to become. Sometimes that is a bowl… sometimes a vase… sometimes something entirely different. So, each piece is a handcrafted, one of a kind creation. Some are used functionally, others are used as pieces of art and some are used for both.
of my next creation. Whether an artistic or functional
piece, I love seeing what is inside a chunk of wood.”
