I make lathe-turned, blind-hollowed vessels. Each piece is turned from a single log—no segments, no lids, no bases. I work mostly with salvaged timber; shapes and sizes vary with the wood collected. I like full-bodied curves that respect the grain and hint at the log beneath. The vessel walls are uniformly thin (3/16”) for lightness and balance; the opening at the top is finger-tip small (c. 1/2”). The tung oil finish leaves the wood natural looking and invites touch.
