My goal is to bring an artistic flair to everyday objects through the natural beauty of wood. Very rarely will I use paint or stains on my projects. I feel that by using oils, waxes, shellacs, and the occasional dye, the figure and grain in the wood can speak for itself. Occasionally I will incorporate other materials, such as the stone face on the "PI" clock below, to augment the beauty of the wood; but for me they are always used to showcase the primary wood species that I am using for a piece.
The latest addition to the collection
This wall clock measures 20" tall x 12 " wide and is about 2" thick. Made from East Indian Rosewood and Quilted maple. With it's quartz movement and hammered copper hands this clock is as contemporary as it gets. The rosewood face is inset into the block of maple giving it an absolutely flat and seamless appearance. The finish is one of my Katana Design specialties.
