Much of my work starts with a particular piece of wood. It is often a striking characteristic of the wood that gives me an idea, and I use the figure of the wood , not as complementary to the form, but as a driving force within the design. It is the infinite patterns produced by nature that then become the inspiration for a piece. The beauty of this process is that the more you look the more you see, so the possibilities for creating patterns are seen to be endless.
