Woodturning and Treenware

“Woodturning is about curves and curves fascinate me. A beautiful
curve can give a sense of movement to a static object, creating a
sudden feeling of tension in the observer and releasing it just as
quickly. I strive to incorporate these qualities into my work.”

David finds the immediacy of woodturning alluring after years of
building objects that required design before construction. He
continues his search for the perfect curve, drawing inspiration from
nature, other design disciplines and the female form.

David turns each object freehand. While turning, he frequently
touches the work with his hands to evaluate things like wall
thickness and surface smoothness. This, coupled with ongoing
visual assessment of overall shape, relationship of curves, figure in
the wood and other aspects, helps to achieve the goal of visual and
physical balance in a piece.

Most pieces are created from local native hardwoods such as
maple, ash, cherry, walnut and others, especially those that offer
unusual figure or grain. Occasionally, imported woods which offer
colors, grain, or density that differ from domestic species are used.
