I'm inspired by nature. My lights are made from naturally occurring wood formations, snags and detritus from lightning strikes.
First I look for interesting, inherent forms. Then I sand blast and treat the wood, photograph and create an architectural model of each piece. This helps me decide what hardware I'll use, where I'll drill a hole, etc. Because each piece is the only one, it takes a lot of care and forethought to determine what his/her final shape will be.
Each one-of-a-kind light sculpture is a testament to the enduring power of natural wood formations.
