My grandfather was a maker.
My father was a maker.
I am a maker.
I’ve turned most anything on the lathe, from pens to segmented urns. I’ve “evolved” into a sculptor, of sorts, with the process starting at the lathe. When the work, mostly wood, is removed from the lathe I begin the process of carving and coloring it. I use most any tool that will do the job. I have found that sometimes the goal is simply to leave only enough material to complete the thought of the piece. I still find a special satisfaction in working with the tools and material.
I enjoy the challenge of taking a thought and then creating something resembling that thought that you can hold in your hand. This puts a smile on my face. And after all, smiling is good.
