“From Trees to Treasure”
To that end, woodturning is the most interesting, joyful leg of my journey to date. There is something elegant about the look and feel of wood. True beauty can be drawn from even damaged, compromised materials. I enjoy the whole process, finding and selecting materials, applying ideas that best show the materials and to their best advantage.
“Good Art” in woodturning is more than just a pleasing shape, a good finish, skillful application and interesting materials. The art, for me, is also doing those things with joy, and to find those forms that best represent the combination of materials and inspiration. Art is often said to “speak to” the observer, to draw them in, to invite them to experience what the art is, what it represents, and even to speak for the artisan… I hope you can “hear” my work.
