My studio has a collection of wood; from the forest, from the river bank, along the railroad tracks and the sawmill. These are the raw materials for most of the furniture and mobiles that I make. These pieces have so much character that they seem to be saying something but in a language that is visual.
The joy of my work is to transform their visual voices into useful pieces of furniture. In the studio ideas develop, ideas like water from artesian well, bubbling up then flowing down to hands and tools. With the use of good joinery, modern adhesives and years of experience each piece is hand crafted to my personal satisfaction. The finish is selected to let the character of the wood shine through.
