I create vessels and objects that have the clean, calm lines of a timeless form. Inspired by the intrinsic beauty of the native and exotic woods he uses, I produce tactile shapes which have function at the same time as transcending into unique pieces of art by using the wood's natural organic traits often enhanced with various finishing techniques. My products range from bottle stoppers and bud vases through larger bowls, vases and platters to large statement pieces, including natural edge pieces.
Being an artist is spending a lot of solitary time enjoying creating, rewarded with the enthusiasm for the resulting pieces which is shown on customers faces when they see and handle them.
My working philosophy is 'from the hands of the artist to the heart of the beholder'.
