Out in the Wood
When I carve, I feel like I am part of something that is being born. When the designs are revealed (both on paper and on wood), I feel a sense of wonder that it is actually there; a wonder of how I produced it.
Each cut is like a real live performance; every move is important and if I disrupt that, it is revealed in the piece. It is a work that requires great strength and also (at the same time) great grace.
