FEATURED MAKER

"Trees are magnificent, often living beyond several human lifetimes. When a tree dies its inherent natural beauty can be an ongoing voice.  With playful exploration and focused tool work, I developed methods sculpting original winged forms on the lathe at high rpm - Cascading Diamond Boxes, Kissing Fish Vessels, Manta Ray Boxes, Spirit Birds with Captured Artisan Marbles, Trillium Boxes... I strive to reveal the extraordinary beauty of fallen trees in artistically elegant, engaging, functional and inspirational ways." - Mike Sorge
