About the Artist
The process I use in my mirrors and tables is a combination of organic and geometric. I believe this elevates the natural edge material. I spend a lot of time finding the right pieces of wood to use. I look for highly figured slabs with intense grain and figure for the organic element in my work, as well as straight-grained pieces with rich, strong color for the geometric contrasts. Sometimes a piece of wood sits in my shop for a while before the right project comes along. I believe the geometric details frame the burl the way a gem setting frames a stone, allowing the observer to focus on the natural beauty of the burl. This also elevates and refines the innate, organic nature of the wood. I strive to highlight the character and spirit that make each piece of wood unique in my designs. Lives and works in Tryon, NC.
