Making functional works of art for the house that are useable and creative by the customer are the foundations of my work.

I use laminations of hardwoods of contrasting colors and grains to produce
artistic patterns in a variety of products. Products include kitchenware, desk
accessories, game boards & game tables. Flat grain, edge-grain, or end-grain
surfaces are available in many designs.
Growing up in the pine forests of Southern New Mexico and working
summers in a logging camp made a significant influence on my choice of wood as an
art medium. Experimenting with tree trunk sections and forming different colored
woods into geometric patterns began my interest in design. I studied design at UC
Davis where I began using domestic and exotic hardwoods to create functional
pieces with geometric patterns made of solid wood.
Currently tongue and groove or dovetail joinery is commonly used and the
designs are developed to withstand the different climates from around the world.
Creating functional products with superior construction, artistic design and unusual
flair are the emphasis of my work. Ultimately my works of art are made to be seen,
touched and enjoyed in everyday life.
My approach to the craft of fine woodworking is simple: I make each item as
if it were my own. Durability, practicality, and artistic beauty are the foundations
of my work. I begin by selecting the finest materials from a variety of domestic and
imported hardwoods. I combine traditional and modern woodworking techniques,
including tongue and groove, dovetail joinery and /or aliphatic pressure bonding
followed by sculpting, shaping, and sanding. Each piece of wood is selected for its
grain and color and then combined with glue to create the designs. Then comes the
process of sanding and sculpting to finish the piece. The pieces are made to
withstand the world’s expansion and contraction problems of wood. The final
process is to put multiple coats of mineral oil or lacquer to finish the piece.
