(" Having turned conventional shapes for a period of time, I found the need to advance towards more aesthetic shapes. I nowblend subtle tones of colour to emphasis the variety of grain found in wood. Each piece is finished by a process of a mixture of natural oils such as Danish Oil and liquid Paraffin over a period of three days.")
