The love of all things natural led me to study Forestry at Northern Arizona University. Receiving my Bachelor of Science Degree / Forestry in 1972 a life of changes began. These changes shaped my life with a desire for seeing natural beauty. Within this world I belong. It is my desire to share my visions with you. I search out discarded, abandoned, forgotten chunks of wood - mount them on a lathe and Let The Wood Shine. Some of my best pieces were discarded for firewood in my own firewood pile. Many times The wood will encourage me not to give up on it, Hence the Title “SpeakingWood” my time is rewarded by a shining piece of natural beauty.
Some pieces are Whimsical, Wizardly, Functional, Art Form, Historical, but all present their own story.
