Collected Wood

My wood art .... collected

I like sharing details of my collected wood pieces.  They help show how my work has changed over the years.  And how it has remained the same.  How the wood art evolved into abstract wall sculptures.  How my turned pieces grew into turned & sculpted.

If you would like to get into the real nitty gritty and learn more about my ‘no steaming and no bending’ process, I invite you to visit Creating Wood Art.
