Wood is the perfect medium to inspire my creativity. It inevitably awakens all of my senses. Most of my creations arise from the principles of a simple box. As the intermediate steward of the tree, I am heartened that it lives again in a form that serves – as a serving tray for tea drinkers, a cremation urn for both the living and the dead, or a keepsake box in the service of memories. As a craftsman, my purpose is to create a box that combines the technical strength of a wood container with the aesthetic properties of the wood itself – ensuring strong joinery while at the same time bringing attention to dancing grain patterns, complimentary colours and delightful irregularities. I also make live edge charcuterie boards and for my whimsical self, delight in making fairy doors for children AND adults.
