I enjoy being able to take an idea and create it.
One of the works I am most proud of is the Chess Bowl. I created this dish when I was relatively new to wood turning for a competition. Up until the creation of this dish I had only turned solid wood without any lamination or pattern design. This dish represents a turning point where a world of design possibilities became apparent.
I have joked with people saying the chess dish represents the conclusion of mutually assured destruction tactics, the result not only being no one having the ability able to win a game of chess but essentially the game not being able to be played again.
