My Vision

I approach woodturning as a sustainable partnership between humans and nature. Using wood already on the ground, I practice my craft as a creative collaborations with wood that allows me to respect the shapes, colours and patterns embedded in it and express them as objects that  seek to please the eye by revealing the innate beauty of nature. Each piece is unique, showing its history of growth and decline, the activity of insects, and long range weather patterns. And my imagination on any given day shifts with the patterns of my life. Woodturning, as I practice it, is a completely sustainable activity. Nature provides the materials and I add a dose of human creativity and whimsy.
