Timeless Pieces of Art - Made from History

I consider myself and describe myself as a woodturning artist. I work from a studio that is filled with other equipment alongside my woodturning lathes.


I’ll often add something else to my work to enhance it, if I see something within the wood.


I look for wood to turn that has it’s own features which can be incorporated into the finished piece.

Each one Unique

Wood comes to the artist with an irrevocable history, with stories of season and weather and surrounding flora and fauna written into its rings. Each raw piece is a character, fully formed, and it brings a specific set of conditions to those who set out to “turn” it: variations in tensile strength and density, pliability or brittleness as determined by the relative greenness of the piece or point of origin on the tree.Is it an aromatic species? Is its color uniform or rippled, light or dark? Is the wood wormy or its grain knotty?


"It’s like a dance between the turner and the wood, working with this material. Unlike clay, for example, where you decide what you want and mix the material accordingly, working with wood is more like a conversation...."
