"As a woodworker for 20 years I am drawn to furniture that is intriguing enough to stand alone as sculpture. My goal as a furniture maker is to combine animated, balanced, interesting forms with function and comfort. Design and the refining of proportions are a very important part of my process and can take as long as making the piece.
"Currently I use many different techniques in my work, including carving, steam bending, lamination and vacuum forming. Some of my recent pieces are made from both stone and wood. I use mostly North American Hardwoods and recently I have been working with Steve and Tim on milling wood from trees in the Port Townsend area that either are blown down or have to be removed. My work has been featured in many books and magazines as well as on HGTV’s “Modern Masters”. I produce both commissioned work and pieces for galleries across the country and in Canada. I enjoy teaching and have taught previously at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts."
