Wood is art, bringing its own color, texture and form to any artwork.  My turned pieces are made from green (wet) wood, as it allows the wood to move and have its own natural effect on the final form.  Shape is the most important characteristic of any turned form, as color and grain may lose their prominence over time.  My turned pieces are made almost exclusively from urban wood - trees which have been cut down because of disease or development.  My furniture is modern in style, emphasizing clean lines and traditional joinery.  The work is eclectic, exploring shape, color, texture and mass.
