Description

Largely self-taught, he works from his studio/shop in Waynesville, NC, surrounded by great stacks of logs, stumps, branches, roots, castoff cuts, rejected knotty burls, and other natural resources awaiting transformation. Bartered treasures from other craftsmen-pottery & glass-often add artistic function to his turned bowls and trays. Another interest-RV travel-presents opportunities to gather unusual additions to his raw materials: Florida beach driftwood, California redwood roots, Louisiana swamp cypress and pecan, Mississippi tupelo or black gum, North Carolina dogwood and apple, and weathered South Carolina barnwood.

My work is unique functional art today—becoming family heirlooms tomorrow. My “polychromatic segmented” pieces have become my signature. When I design a precision-cut pattern I like to incorporate as many wood species as possible to lend complexity with balance and symmetry. I find it very satisfying that 80% or more of my wood raw material is recycled from waste bins of other woodworkers.
