Jury - 2021 CHESTER COUNTY STUDIO TOUR
As an arborist for over 40 years, with a love for the variety of trees of horticulturally-rich southeastern Pennsylvania, I eventually acquired a lathe and began to turn these woods into bowls. Never quite knowing what each piece of wood has hidden inside or what shape or size it will end up becoming, the work unfolds as I turn. I see it as an attempt to reveal the unique beauty of each and I'm continually amazed at what is hidden inside. My joy is in creating practical containers for salads, fruits and keepsake collections that allow me to share the beauty of wood with all.
