You know, it’s captivating…

It’s never been important to me to label myself as a wood worker or an artist or a designer. I realized one time that I could build anything I designed so, it’s just opened up the field of possibilities. You know, it’s captivating.  Right now I’m in these sculpture pieces which lends themselves to application of some of the different mediums I’ve messed around in – from jewelry-making to ceramics to drawing and these really give me a range of options to enhance a piece with particular detail. I’ve always realized, like I said, that I could build anything that I designed so there’s no limitation to what I might get myself involved in. I like the process and I like seeing the results at the end.
