Turning bowls requires patience and an eye for the natural grain of a tree.  It takes years to sufficiently dry a chunk of trunk to the point that it can be turned on a lathe and made into something of beauty and grace.

I work mostly on woods that come from local trees — and most of those are diseased and have to be cut down. I gain deep satisfaction by giving new life to old trees as works of art.
