ABOUT

My first experience with wood turning came shortly after high school when I spent a couple of months working with a master turner on the Winchcombe Pottery site in the UK. The experience laid down an appreciation for traditional craft practice.

I went on to a career in studio and commercial furniture, retail design and project management. I returned to turning as a counterpoint to the commercial work I was doing and as a way of making functional and beautiful objects from local materials.

I believe there is something to be said for knowing the provenance of the objects we use, where they came from, how they were made, by whom, and how they connect with community. To paraphrase William Morris, I believe everyday objects should give us pleasure as both aesthetic and functional objects.

I currently work out of my studio in Nanaimo, BC.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Craft is at the core of my practice; making beautiful, functional objects at a reasonable price is the goal and inspiration. This can only be achieved through repetition, by the mastering and constant improvement of technique and the application of rigorous standards of quality and aesthetic. My practice is hands on, from stump to table. Every step of the process from collecting logs to the final branding of the bowl is carried out with care and attention to detail.
