I do not turn my work. The symmetry is created during the building process. Piece by piece, layer by layer, I build each form hollow, carefully controlling the wall thickness and profile. The one-of-a-kind patterns made by the tiny stacked wooden pieces achieve a quality reminiscent of basketry and mosaic tile work. The honed finished surfaces undulate slightly, similar to that of hand built ceramics. Be it a vessel, a sculpture, a table or a light, the ritual of creating unique objects from previously discarded materials is a powerful statement about what we value and consider desirable.
