Wooden items are part of a greater story, grown over decades through grain, knots and endless summers. Each piece takes otherwise discarded wood, left overs from tree surgery or off cuts from larger woodwork projects to create the beginning of a new chapter.

Carving allows me to be a part of that story, being guided by the form of the grain in a creative and meditative process that brings a connection to each piece through each strike of the axe and stroke of the knife.
