About

Kayaker and Craftsman

Foundwood Designs came from a few directions all at the same time. I was looking for new ways to promote a book I had just self-published, I had some time and creative energy on my hands and an Etsy shop template started, but abandoned.
I have worked in many different mediums, from ceramics after picking up my AFA when I began working with a stone carver who was turning his original works into Raku pottery replicas. This led me to years of creating in clay and a real retail shop for some time as well, as my workshop was blended into the studio gallery. From there I turned to wood. Making CD racks for a local record store, puppets and small boxes.
My attentions returned to a love of words and I have spent the past few years developing my passion for writing about my passion of the outdoors and specifically sea kayaking.
The kayaking gave me an avenue into a new type of woodworking when I began dragging home wet, smelly lengths of driftwood with my kayak. The natural artwork hidden inside certain choice peices gave me the material to explore making wooden pendants. The rest is history.
Foundwood Designs basic rule is that no bought wood will be used. All of my works must come from found sources, which brings with it joys and challenges but also great satisfaction when someone purchases something I have made that has some from reclaimed and recycled materials.

    Hey Dave here and thanks for coming by Foundwood Designs today. I live, work and kayak on an island called Salt Spring on the west coast of Canada. My interests vary from working in different media to writing about my passions.
