All of my woodenware is completely handmade. It is crafted from wood gathered close to home- a spoon might come from a pruned apple limb, or a blowdown cherry tree. From there it is split, sawn, and carved into a functional & aesthetic object. I believe firmly that an act of patience is a worthy one, and that the value of what is handmade will never be surpassed by mass mechanical reproduction. My tool marks on the work will tell a story of its making, if you are curious enough to read the signs. 

 

If you are passing through Stowe, Vermont you can find my carvings for sale at Northwood Gallery on Main St.
