A woodworker for over 40 years, I still love the process of designing and making beautiful objects in wood. Formerly a furniture maker, my work now consists of handcrafted boxes, vessels, and chests. The smaller scale allows for more design freedom, as I am unhindered by considerations inherent in creating larger functional pieces.
I employ various traditional techniques including frame and panel construction, vacuum press bending, and inlay. Post-modern architecture, traditional Japanese architecture, modernist sculpture, and contemporary jazz have been some of the influences on my work. I infuse my pieces with contrasting components such as hues of color, curved and straight lines, hard and soft edges, etc. At times the contrasts are subtle; at other times distinct to the degree of polar opposites. A sense of unity is the overall guiding principle influencing my aesthetic decisions.
