My background includes working with wood sculptors as well as traditional craft people. Those diverse influences have led me to think of the technical aspect of my work as much as the reasons beyond making and designing.
I aim to make objects that are both functional and sculptural. I like to break out of symmetry and keep looking at new ways of shaping the materials.
The wood that I choose is a plain in grain so that the form can stand out without being overwhelmed by figurative pattern. The focus is put on crisp lines and clean surfaces to achieve maximum definition.
The process of seeing and idea develop from drawing into real pieces bring great pleasure to me and I hope this transfers into the finished product.
