Creative woodturning from reclaimed trees


My wooden bowls and vessels are one of a kind. Each handmade wooden item is created from reclaimed and recycled trees that came down from storms, were dying due to disease or drought, or were being removed due to construction. Instead of shipping them off to be ground into mulch or cut for firewood, I take the wood and find the beauty of each piece by turning it on a lathe. By removing the outer layers I strive to reveal the beauty that nature has hidden within the tree. Surface imperfections, color and grain variations, and minor warping add to the natural beauty and interest of each piece. I sincerely hope that you enjoy this creative use of reclaimed wood.
