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.

Morph XII

Morph XII : One aspect of my designs that I have not discussed much is exemplified in Morph XII. Asymmetry…which I personally define as comfortable unpredictability. It allows walking around this piece, and most of my other work, and seeing different things in the journey.

Morph XII | 1′-6″ h, 10″ w, 6″ d | Black Walnut | SOLD

Morph XI

Morph XI embodies my favorite sweeps and sensuous curves, but it also displays a rather dramatic and extremely stylized human form. In the process, it violates the traditional “Golden Thirds” rule. But my roguish nature likes breaking rules.

Morph XI | 1′-6″ h, 7″ diameter | Bay Laurel | SOLD

Morph X

Morph X : I do love the outcome of the movement and tight undulations. It’s fun to allow your eyes to trace the edge-line along its one, continuous, unbroken curve.

Morph X | 11” h, 7” w, 7”d | Windshake Walnut | Inquire.

Chocolate Twist

Chocolate Twist : The execution of Chocolate Twist and Chocolate Twist II proved an immense challenge. How to get inside and around and then sand it? Well, I don’t advise trying this at home.

Chocolate Twist | 9″ h, 12″ diameter | Spalted Black Walnut | Inquire.


Trapeze : Designing Trapeze was as much presenting Nature’s inherent beauty as it was my melding with it. Hanging as a wall sculpture, the piece is oriented as the trees stood, lower trunk at bottom, upper limbs spreading at top.

Trapeze | 18″h, 14″w, 3″d | Crotch Burl Walnut | Wall Sculpture | Inquire.

Morph V

Morph V : I purposely selected a wood whose grain and figure would not strongly distract from my intended design. That’s why I chose the wood I most love – walnut. Solid, straight-grained and unfigured.

Morph V | 10” h, 10” w, 7”d | American Black Walnut | SOLD

Morph IV

Morph IV : A long vertical tunnel runs the entire length of the piece. Then it splits open and curls in on itself in a decreasing radius curve.

Morph IV | 1′-4″ h, 7″ dia | Cherry | In the Private Collection of Gaye Gravely Pollitt.

Morph III

Morph III : has a maturity that I hope will carry an entire series in wood, because I’m having way too much fun to stop now. I want to see where it takes me.

Morph III | 9” h, 6” diameter | American Black Walnut | SOLD

First Born

First Born : Set aside for almost four years because the refinement and sanding process is a discipline I found lacking in those days!

First Born | 1’-11”h, 7” diameter | Aromatic Red Cedar | SOLD


Morph : Although I’ve often said that I will take my inspiration wherever I can find it, I never expected to find it at a party in a bowl of pot-pourri.

Morph | 1′-0″ h, 8″ diameter | Windshake Walnut | SOLD

New Wave

New Wave : This piece insisted on showing off soft lines and wide broad surfaces of its grain and texture.

New Wave | 12” h, 1’-8” w, 9” d | Windshake Walnut | SOLD
