My designs are entirely original, sometimes inspired by the work of others but never copied. I resist letting the tools and methods used dominate the design. My designs balance form, function, texture, and material and while all of my pieces are functional they are crafted to be aesthetically pleasing, balanced, and artistic. The forms of my pieces draw you in to touch them to discover the attention I have given to the texture and detail. My pieces are finished with penetrating oil so that you will enjoy the feel of the wood, not a plastic coating. Functional art is what I love to create.
