Hand turned functional art.
Exotic woods, and other material inspired by nature, are turned to a purpose as fine writing instruments, bottle stoppers, bowls, pepper mills and other works of art.
Each piece is meticulously hand-crafted to delight the hand and the eyes.

How I Got Here
I am fascinated by the grand works of art created by â€œMother Natureâ€ and enjoy turning natureâ€™s art to a human purpose. In particular, I enjoy the warmth and figure of real wood, and started wood-turning a number of years ago. I delight in the beauty revealed as an apparently non-descript piece of wood is turned and polished.
From wood turning, I started working with other natural materials such as bone, antler, and stone that have similar â€œaccidental beautyâ€. Now I look for the hidden beauty in anything, natural or man-made, that can be turned to a purpose and to a pleasing experience for the eyes and hands.
