We’re all connected to the land. I paint sublime landscapes of the American west to deepen that connection and bring beauty into our daily lives.
Custom, hand-made furniture of original designs using primarily local, native Northwest hardwoods.
Unique utensils, crafts and assorted items made from wood. Mainly walnut & maple, individually done.
I begin with raw lumber to make my personally designed functional wood items.
Wood turned on a lathe and then carved with a dental drill and burnt with a wire-tipped wood burner.
We use maple, bamboo & hickory plywoods with routers, table saws, chop saws and sanding tools.
I select wood from downed local trees. I turn and finish to maximize pleasing shapes and colors.
Local wood and colored epoxy are cured together then hand-shaped, drilled, sanded, and oiled.
Domestic/exotic woods/veneers, selected for grain, color, texture. Hand cut inlay, no, CNC/laser.
Bowls, vases and decorative turnings are hand shaped on the lathe using a variety of hardwoods.
