Announcement    About

I have a passion for the beauty in wood.

Perfection is Not what I’m about! I use less than perfect wood, so I get less than perfect bowls. I get a more raw and natural piece of work in the end, which I find very pleasing.

I use spalted wood, burl wood, and I often turn straight from the stump. The wood is so wet it’s spitting water/sap the whole time!

I only use local Maine wood! Most of it you will find in a Maine firewood pile. Why buy exotics from overseas or even the west coast when there is abundance of Beautiful wood right here at home?

This is my art!

Thank you for looking! Stay Gold!


I will be setting up new photos very soon of all my work to showcase them better.
One of the things I would like to address here is something that was brought to my attention recently. I was asked by a prospective client "Why do I see tool marks on most of your bowls?"
That is I guess a signature, I like to leave tool marks on my work, it can be seen as a flaw. This flaw only helps make the piece even more unique than it already is and just like with people our flaws are what make us special. So I leave "flaws" to remind us all that even with this "flaw" it actually adds to the overall beauty of the piece

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work! If I can help you in any way or answer any questions for please just ask!

Stay Gold!

Stay Gold people!
