Morph XIV

Morph XIV

Morph XIV takes elements from my previous works and becomes a cantilevered, curl-over wood sculpture, as well as a mobius. Unbeknownst to me at the time, it would be part of my inspiration for one of my future glass sculptures, Ode to Morph.

Morph XIV : 1′-4″ h, 10″ w, 6″ d | Black Cherry | Inquire.

Oceania

Oceania

Oceania: The creative process for this turned and sculpted piece was, not surprisingly, multi-stepped. I began by turning the rough exterior contour on a lathe and then drilling a 1 ¼” diameter hole into the top center.

Oceania | 5″ h, 8″ diameter | Bark-edge Maple Burl | Inquire.

Charybdis

Charybdis

My first glimpse of what would become Charybdis was a tree twisted unlike any I had ever seen. I figured its contorted mass resulted from a tornado strike when it was just a sapling. It sported double back curves that are my stock in trade, and I very badly wanted to sculpt into it for its color and grain features.

Charybdis | 5′-2″ h, 2′-3″ w, 1′-6″ d | Osage Orange | Inquire.

Morph VII

Morph VII

Slender, open front curl and up-swept spire makes a real statement for the size of this Black Cherry wood sculpture. I borrowed some lines from two previous sculptures in the Morph Series…but since it’s my work, I do not feel guilty of plagiarism. You decide.

Morph VII | 1’- 2” h, 7” w, 5”d | Black Cherry | Inquire.

Infinity Rising

Infinity Rising

Infinity Rising : My design intent for this highly figured redwood sculpture was to strike a good balance between positive and negative space. To capture its figurative elements and impart a sense of organic life.

Infinity Rising | 1′-10″ h, 1′-1″ w, 10″ d | Distressed Curly Redwood | Inquire.

Morph VI

Morph VI

Morph VI : The lines, movement and proportions just worked so well together. This was another difficult piece to visualize and execute. A real fun challenge.

Morph VI | 1’- 4” h, 10” w, 6” d | Black Cherry | Inquire.

Morph II

Morph II

Experimentation and not being afraid to take risks are key to pushing the bounds. Like in my windshake walnut wood sculpture, standing horizontal or vertical, provided risky trajectory challenges to “meet in the middle.”

Morph II | Vertical: 1′-6″ h, 1′-2″ w, 9″ d | Horizontal: 1′-2″ h, 1′-6″ w, 9″ d | Inquire.

Passages into the Void

Passages into the Void

Passages into the Void : When most artists talk about partnering with the work, this is what they mean. And this piece reminds me of that other dimension or realm. There are endless access points or routes to get from the outside to the inside or from one side to the other.

Passages into the Void | 4′-3″ h, 1′-2″ w, 1′-2″ d | Aromatic Red Cedar | Inquire.

Wave Length

Wave Length

Wave Length : Ordinarily my work is done in complete isolation. Now, all of a sudden, I was setting up a temporary studio in a corner of a custom furniture company in a foreign country.

Wave Length | 2′-2″ h, 4′-3″ w | Swiss Walnut | Wall Sculpture | Inquire.

Romancing the Stone

Romancing the Stone

Romancing the Stone : This Rhododendron root burl so tenaciously cradled that piece of granite, I had no other option when I sculpted the piece than to honor their 30+ year relationship.

Romancing the Stone | 10″ h, 1′-3″ w, 5″ d | Rhododendron & Granite | Inquire.

Flug Ober Muotatal

Flug Ober Muotatal

Flug Ober Muotatal : The negative space nearly equals the positive. My intention was to give an overall sense of flight, using the upswept delta, as if a bird was standing with its wings raised upward.

Flug Ober Muotatal | 3′-10″ h, 3′-3″ w | Swiss Cherry | Wall Sculpture | Inquire.

Gaia

Gaia

Gaia : This piece attempts to capture the concept of everything as a single living organism, all interconnected & interdependent, and at the same time acknowledges that we are connected to something larger.

Gaia | 3′-2 ” h, 1′-10″ | American Black Walnut | Inquire.
