“Wood has become my voice and my language.  Over years spent making things both useful and useless out of wood the physical work of sawing, carving, turning, and polishing has become my contemplation.  The real effort is in figuring out what to make next.  Sometimes the wood itself makes a suggestion.  Sometimes I work just to keep my hands occupied.  And sometimes it all comes together into a kind of wooden poem.”
