elcome, wood and wood arts lovers! On these pages you will find art
objects that reveal the incomparable natural beauty of wood in forms both aesthetic and functional.
Enjoy them at your leisure. Should you especially like any particular piece, most can be purchased.
I shape and finish each free-form piece individually, by hand. Every work is a new and original
design; I'm impatient with repetitive projects. My current inclinations favor candleholders and
vases, but I can't resist occasional sculptures, bits of furniture and other objects. I prefer
clear wood finishes; stains or dyes may obscure natural color patterns and intricate grain details.
Wood choices are eclectic. I use many Southern California locals (e.g. avocado, eucalyptus) but
enjoy tropicals as well. I fit candleholder sockets and vase cavities with copper sleeves (my vases
hold water safely) and, as appropriate, pieces are invisibly base-weighted for stability.
Thanks for stopping by!
