I have been turning full time for the past 25 years.  During this period I have drawn a lot of inspiration for shapes and damages from the potters of Japan and the Native American Indians.

 

By studying these vessels I have taken the opportunity to utilize these principles and transfer them into contemporary design through the mediums of wood.

 

The techniques, which I gained whilst studying in the United States of America, I have enabled me to create these particular forms.

 

I like the visual effects and the tactile response of textures on my “wood art”, but also the smooth finish, which enhances the beautiful grains of the timber.

 

The tools I use, I have made for the sole purpose of hollowing out the vessels.  During the hollowing process, I listen to the changing sound of the chisel tip cutting action to gauge the wall thickness.
