I have always had a good eye for shape and form. The wood I use is often damaged in some way, either by disease or weather and because every item is individually crafted, I am able to shape each piece to show off the natural features - in many ways, nature is the artist, I am just the engineer, showing off her work to its greatest advantage. It is a journey of discovery to find the features hidden within. Then, using simple shapes to encapsulate nature’s artistry, I create an item of elegance and beauty.
The nature of the wood I use and the process of shaping each piece, sympathetically guided by its individual features, makes each and every piece totally individual. Such uniqueness is not possible in any mass production environment, giving each piece a very special value.
