Handcrafted Lathe Art

About the Artist

I retired from municipal government in the community development sector and prior to that the construction business and have been working with wood from a very young age.  I enjoy turning fallen trees into usable items and decorative art.  I have always enjoyed using a variety of writing instruments and have collected fine pens for years, now we design and craft our own.  We design our bowls, vases and platters as the wood blank speaks to us.  I recently have incorporated multiple mediums into our wood pieces including: acrylics, gemstone inlays, epoxies and I thoroughly enjoyed building segmented wood projects.  Most of my art projects are original designs by my wife and I with local woods from here in Kansas with a few woods being purchased outside Kansas.  I believe we should 'Make Good Art' when designing and crafting a project.  We hope you enjoy the website and we would appreciate your business if you desire to purchase an item. Please contact us with special requests and orders for your special occasion.
