I specialize in unique pieces, such as decorative bowls, alabaster art, or even a lovely wood wall hanging to hang in your living room or study

I hope that you share my love for the incredible creation around us. It is my belief that my art only "liberates" the beauty found in the wood and stone I use. Because of this belief I am constantly looking for material of character and uniqueness. If you should purchase a piece of my art, I hope it will be a blessing to you and your family for many years to come.

Though I have worked in many different types of wood, my favorite by far is burl wood. A burl, sometimes called a burr, is a rather homely-looking growth that often forms as a tree attempts to protect itself from some type of damage. The most amazingly beautiful grain a tree has to offer can be found in its burls.

Recently I have begun to venture into the world of stone turning. There is evidence that even as far back as ancient Egypt, man has turned stone to make vessels for practical and artistic purposes. The medium presents some very exciting challenges.

Should you see a piece that you like but would like it in another wood species or stone type, please let me know. I am happy to do custom work for my customers. Thanks again for visiting and I hope you will stop back often.
