I treat the patterns or figure in these beautiful woods the same way a painter uses the colors and textures in the paint medium to express his artistic vision. Chests & boxes sculpted out of solid hardwoods merge function curvaceous lines and fine woodworking. Fine design attractive to the eye as well as the hand showcasing beautiful woods exquisite finish. My work showcases highly figured exotic and domestic hardwoods sculpted into chests and boxes using machine and hand techniques. A lacquer finish is brushed on and rubbed to a satin smoothness giving depth to the dramatic colors and grain patterns.
