Martha Collins

Carlsborg, WA

My passion is to create personal, meaningful works of art with the natural color and grains of exotic hardwoods and artist hand dyed maple veneer. I "weave" wood into fabric like patterns, reminiscent of bead work or needlepoint. A 2 inch bowl can have 1000 pieces of wood in it. Sustainable woods from around the world are used. Chatke Viga is a vibrant orange, Kingwood a striped purple; Lacewood and White Oak add texture with their dramatic grain patterns.
