Statement

 

Statement:

I work with a lot of found discarded wood, lately, benign scrap dimensional lumber.

From tree, to useful building material, to discarded scrap.  I take this scrap, crosscut it thin

(exposing the rings of the tree) and reassemble it (into dimensional lumber sculpture)

to show the once living thing it was and the once useful material it became at the same

time in a delicate and light (you can see light thru it) object of beauty.

Connecting the worlds of nature, industry and art.
