Beautifully hand-carved and finished to perfection. This piece of art is even more exquisite in person. A welcome addition to my collection of hand crafted wooden bowls. Very good communication with shop owner. Thank you.
Life as a Traditional Woodcarver
Wood art is my life. I carve hardwood bowls using traditional hand tools. I start with freshly cut trees, then study each log to determine its best use and the potential sculpture encased within. I strive to expose and accentuate the beauty of the wood grain as it reflects shapes and textures found in nature. I use local waste wood, that would be landfilled or burned, to create art that gives both visual and tactile pleasure.
I am devoted to the use of traditional hand tools and carving techniques. I am also an avid collector of antique woodcarving tools, and enjoy sharing my art through teaching and demonstrating.
