Every piece of wood has a personality, a story enclosed in it. My job is to let it out. I try not to force a piece of wood into shape but follow it into one. I am especially attracted to unusual pieces, the ones that might look defective to an outsider’s eye – they always have the most drama in them, but any piece of wood has its interesting side.
My pieces tend to have primarily organic shapes; nature, in its seeming simplicity, is an endless source of inspiration for me.
