Furniture design, . . . functional art

My explorations in wood grew from an interest to create and build by hand. Each piece begins with pencil sketches working through proportions and joinery details to absorb the natural seasonal movements of wood. Initially grounded in the spare elegance of Shaker influences, my work has evolved to reflect the warmth, humor and surprise of life’s journey. The challenge lies in integrating expressive forms with the structural integrity of traditional hand-worked joinery. The mating of complementary grain textures of tropical and domestic hardwoods provides counterpoint to details of artistry and hand rubbed natural finishes, . . . Made by hand.
