Wood: Steam bent and laminated oak. Stain and wax finish. Stone clay: Press moulded and tooled. Polychromed with oils.
For me the pleasure of the aesthetic experience lies in finding a balance between a guiding structure and a variety of embellishments; a harmony of order and movement. I like the idea that we can observe the medley of forms in a plant and take from that a few expressive elements that once crafted/constructed will function as a symbol for all nature. There is a yearning for perpetuity embodied in pattern, anda desire to understand nature?s sublime secret of creation.
