Medieval Inspired Creations
I never liked wood working.
It's true. Through high school and my teen years, there was nothing about wood working that had any interest for me. I'm not sure what it was that sparked the creativity in me a few years ago, but I'm hooked now. I'm active in my local Wood Turner's Guild where I live and am always amazed at the wonderful and amazing creative that I'm surrounded by. The city that I live in is a treasure trove of exceptionally talented artists and we feed off each other's creativity. It's a great feeling.
My inspiration for my own new pieces generally comes from the Viking era and medieval period - pretty much from the 9th through 12th Century in England. I like seeing what was done over one thousand years ago and how much of it is, amazingly, still relevant today. Fashionable designs may come and go, but a good honest bowl is a constant.
Much of what I make is not done in high-gloss and with extensive sanding. To me, wood should always feel organic and textured. High-gloss synthetic finishes just feel like plastic to me. My bowls and cups are smoothly finished, but only lightly sanded. The finishes I use too are also organic - oils and beeswax rather than chemical loaded polyurethanes. This keeps them food safe, but they do need a bit more care to look after. With that little bit of care, they'll serve you well for years to come. My own bowls that I use and abuse have seen many years of faithful service and will see many more.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my creations. I hope you enjoy them.
Owner, Wood Worker
Each wood turning has a character all its own. Wood, being an organic and formerly living thing, has bumps, flaws and little nuances. If I see something that adds character I may not sand it out entirely; This does not mean it's poorly finished. There's a certain beauty in non-conformity, and I love pieces that express that.
