Artist Statement

When I pick out a piece of wood from my collection of rescued timber I first look at the bark and see if there are any interesting shapes that might covering up the story hiding below.
After I cut a cookie off the end of the log with a chain saw to see what history of the tree has to tell me, I reduce the piece to a size that will fit on the lathe.
The grain direction, color and texture determines what the piece will become after I mount it on the lathe.
My work draws from the work of masters in wood and pottery over the centuries.
I enjoy working with clients to produce a piece that reflects their desires and budget.


I teach woodturner classes for individuals or small groups for beginners to advanced. Programs are customized to meet your needs. Hourly rate is $30/hour. All day $150, half days $100. Graduates are welcome back to touch-up skills. I have 2 large lathes and 2 small lathes. Hand tools are available if you don’t have your own yet.
