My mission is to reveal the inner beauty of wood with one-of-a-kind shapes that highlight natural characteristics often unseen.
My inspiration is drawn from nature. I allow the natural grain patterns and structure of the wood to influence the final design of the piece. I harvest most of my wood from the local Ann Arbor area, primarily from trees that have fallen from severe weather, natural causes, and land development. The domestic wood I use is often complimented with accents of exotic wood to create a one-of-a-kind composition.
I finish my works of turned art with lacquer, or a combination of non-toxic oils and wax. My pieces include bowls, boxes, urns, vessels, and wall hangings ranging from finger tip size up to 30″ in diameter.
