I begin my work on a lathe turning native Appalachian wood and exotic imported woods into bowls, vases, and small objects. These classic forms are either finished, carved, inlaid, airbrushed, or pryographed to create useful or decorative vessels or objects. I try to treat each unique creation with sensitivity for the material in order to display and to celebrate its full character. The shapes of my bowls and hollow vases are both classic and contemporary.
