Juried Shows

In order to show my work in the best possible venue, I apply only to juried shows .

A juried show is where a panel of qualified jurors sit in a darkened room viewing digital images presented by the show applicants.

The jurors have approximately 7 seconds to view and score four images of the work and the display. The scores are then tallied and the spaces are awarded to the high scorers.

I have been fortunate to participate in over 200 shows.

I prefer to sell my work in this manner because I get a chance to explain the design process as it relates to my love of the medium.

Hopefully I will have a chance to see you walk into my booth someday so check my schedule frequently.

Special Gifts

As you can see, I have been busy with all my helpers building boxes to meet all your gift giving needs this season. Most of my boxes have been bought by someone wishing to purchase a special gift.

They liked the fact that all my pieces were signed, dated and all the different exotic woods used were listed on the bottom. This extra bit of detail shows the recipient, you went out of your way to get them something really unique.

Visit the galleries below to see this seasons gift offerings.

Safe Natural Tea Caddy

If you like loose-leaf tea, you need to store it somewhere. You may have heard a lot in the media lately about BPAs being harmful and how you should be careful where you store your food as chemicals can leech into the food from the container. This is absolutely accurate. With our products you can be sure that we use only the safest and most natural items to make your boxes:

  • No dyes
  • No stains
  • No glues
  • No adhesives
  • No chemical treatments
  • Only all natural wood. 

Whether you choose to store your loose leaf tea directly in the box, or in its original containers, you can be sure it will be safe to use in our boxes.

Contrasting Woods

I just finished a new series using contrasting ebonies from Africa and Laos. Gabon ebony and black and white ebony create a visual impact as seen below. A great gift to give or keep.
