MORE ABOUT THIS ARTIST

More Info

About My Work:

I have always been interested in the arts and creating things.  First it was music, then photography, followed by pottery and fancy carved candles.  In 1979 I discovered woodturning and by 1983 I was addicted.  It seems I am driven to produce something everyday.  I have always been fascinated by wood, especially burled woods which I use whenever I can obtain them.

My work is influenced by Nature and tribal art.  My goal is to incorporate all that Nature has to offer, including knots, splits and cracks.  Working thusly with Nature, as opposed to against Nature, is truly a collaborative experience.

I am drawn to cultures and cultural art that reflect the unity of Man and Nature … such as the Native Americans, Hawaiians, Polynesians, African Tribal Art, Australian Aborigines and the Maori of New Zealand.

It should be noted that my material, wood, comes trees downed by storm or other natural causes.  I do not cut down living trees.

 

Pricing Information:

My lowest priced simple small bowls begin at $25 retail.  The price rises depending on size, complexity and time.  My largest work to date is over 43 inches tall, made of walnut and maple and is priced at $2000.

 

The majority of my work is in the $100 to $700 range.
