Artistic Woodturning by

I must say, North Carolina has an abundance of wood that's  just plain beautiful.  While some of my bowls are utilitarian, all are a unique mix of art and nature.



My vases are turned and hollowed using a wide variety of wood species.



Some pieces just don't fit nicely into a category.  They seem to be more of a combination of design ideas.

Welcome to my Website!

I have been working with wood most of my life.  Since 1998 I have focused primarily on the art of woodturning. While I do spend a fair amount of time turning, I do enjoy other pursuits and probably don't update this site as often as I should.  That being the case, come on in, look around and let me know what you think.
