  1. Wow! Your work is beautiful! What an amazing journey you have been on. All the piece are gorgeous but the bowls really caught my eye. I can’t imagine the amount of time you put in to create each piece. Do you have a favorite wood that you like to work with? If so, what is it?

    1. Thanks for the compliment, yes it is a lot of enjoyable hard work; my favorite wood is mahogany and I have been collecting for 28 years from the time I moved to Anguilla; so I have a container full of properly cured wood; hearts are the most popular bread and butter  item sold as stress relievers or touch form. this week alone I have orders for 50 to the  the USA..

  2. Your work is beautiful, and just in time for Christmas. How did you ever learn to carve and make such lovely pieces? I cannot imagine how long it must take to make some of these pieces. Can you tell more about the methods you use? I did look around some more on your site and will visit again.

    1. Thanks for visiting, I have modified some electric tools and designed my own sanders to help speed up production. I have refused teaching my methods of production because some of it is dangerous . I am also   a potter and has given tips on both disciplines; view the blogs and reviews.

  4. This is very nice work. The wood looks rich and it invites you to want to pick it up. The colour gradation is very interesting as well. How do you get that beautiful effect? It makes every piece unique even if they are the same shape and size and just adds a lot of character. Well done!
