slowly, with intention
My practice attempts to resist the pace of modern life: the need to scale rapidly, workaholism and burnout, the idea that if we don’t reach a massive audience, what we do doesn’t matter. Collections may be small and infrequent, but know that each piece is one-of-a-kind and crafted with love.
marks of the human hand
Everything I make has been physically guided by my own hands. Using a process that involves predominantly hand tools, I don't expect nor want my pieces to be confused with something mass produced. Variation and small marks of the hand are all part of this very human process.
the material speaks
I understand that wood is a natural resource that must be cut down in order for me to create. Whenever possible, I choose cut-off or foraged pieces that are unusable in industrial projects. It’s in these pieces where I find the most beauty and character—knots, holes, and signs of nature.
creation over production
Every shape, fiber, and wood choice is unique to its particular piece. While I wish I had the energy to produce multiples, I’d rather create pieces at a particular moment in time that can never truly be replicated—similarly to the moment a shutter clicks on a camera.
