About The Artwork

I find inspiration in hand tools and the physical actions their use entails. Homemade tools are often most interesting because their purpose may not be so obvious. The dowsing rod is a simple forked branch that some believe can help to locate water. In this sense, it would appear that the user believes in magic. The the orange orb at the base of the fork appears gem-like, suggesting value.

Much of my practice includes collecting and preparing wood from local trees. When I began this process years ago, the material came from friends or neighbors who cut down trees and offered the wood to me. Now I have many trees on my property that may drop large branches. Most require careful and regular pruning. Recently I was forced to take down a sugar maple that was rotting from the inside out. This provided me with a considerable amount material that is dense and quite excellent. It also provided much of the material used to make “Red Fence.” The scroll form in the piece was made with wood I saved from pruning pear trees some years ago. I’d like to think that my work functions like poetry, except it uses forms instead of words to evoke thoughts and feelings that lie deep and barely realized.
