I would venture to think that many of us do not appreciate  that all the objects in our lives made of wood where once alive. Kitchen utensils, picture frames, hardwood flooring, construction materials, wooden art objects, tables, chairs and of course my sculptural boxes all started out as a growing, living and reproducing organism.  After 42 years and thousands of boxes I have come to realize that my most satisfying and successful pieces are the result of a process that begins with that understanding and a personal relationship with the actual tree that becomes the raw material for my boxes.
