The first time of placing gouge on timber conjured a very visceral response – a feeling of being home. This, however, happened some 25 years ago, during years living in New Zealand, eleven and a half thousand miles away from home.
The immediacy and spontaneity of shaping timber on a lathe became such a joy and so captivating; the relationship with the timber, process and the lathe never failed to create inner peace.
My early work was driven by a desire to perfect technique. Consequently, this created a diverse range of work and skills. Latterly, my work is more considered, but never loosing that sense of humour I impart to some of my work.
Woodturning and designing on the lathe with its creative possibilities continue to enthral and my fascination with the medium keeps me driven to find the perfect curve; for some artists the process is not important. For me however, it is one part of the whole. Whatever I create, the search for perfect form and sensuous curve is paramount.
