Description

“I was inspired by crafts I saw in galleries and thought that the experience I had using natural materials as well as recycled ones might lead to some interesting creations. After reading a number of books on birdhouse construction, I began moving my designs away from the predictable and into more creative and individual pieces.

The wood I find provides the basis for the products I create. My goal is to produce pieces which possess rustic beauty and functionality, while in the process giving new life to old, unusual, or discarded materials.”
