Juried Virginia Artisan

We are blessed in Virginia to have the Artisans Center of Virginia (ACV) which supports and promotes the Artisan Community.

I am proud that my peers have recognized me as a Juried Virginia Artisan.

ACV defines Artisan below.

"An Artisan creates objects of three dimensional craft, often to be used functionally, but always with a high degree of artistry and quality craftsmanship. For the Artisan, form follows function, and the work of the Artisan speaks to the simple honesty of that paradigm. The Artisan pours himself into his craft, making his quality objects with pride, honesty, and integrity. Whether using hand tools or machines, the Artisan takes no shortcuts that might compromise the quality of the work. The Artisan does not attempt to compete with the large scale manufacturer, and the amount of time taken to make a work of fine craft is secondary to the result. That the goal of the Artisan is to achieve heirloom quality is an unspoken assumption."

To minimize the environmental impact, I feature woods acquired from local Virginia vendors. Whenever possible, I use recycled and salvaged wood that otherwise might end up in a landfill. I have used wood washed up by Hurricane Katrina in Mississippi, discarded fence posts, left over cypress siding from a cidery in Albemarle County and a pear tree blown down by Hurricane Isabelle in my Chesterfield County yard. These are some of the woods that we feature:

Autumn Olive
Osage Orange
Red Cedar
Red Oak
Tulip poplar
White Oak

I hand craft our objects with an eye to bringing out the natural beauty of the wood. I choose finishes to provide practical protection for the specific application.
