Crafting practical, functional products that are perceived as art is my self-imposed challenge. I am on a continuous hunt for interesting exotic species of wood or unusual variations of more common ones. To my mind, ‚Äúflaws‚Äù of nature are points of interest. After I collect a natural piece of wood, I live with it sometimes for years until its potential becomes apparent. Its character controls its destiny by determining the finished product. In the end, I attempt to make art transcend the craft.
In recent years I have developed a line of wood boxes that resemble realistic books, but open in various unexpected and surprising ways.
