My primary focus is handcrafted bowls, but I also make plates, platters, and other woodenware, such as rolling pins and wine bottle stoppers.  Most of my pieces are meant to be used, and if cared for, should last for generations.

I have been passionate about woodturning for many years, and I’m thrilled that I can now pursue the craft full-time.  (After 30 years in Research & Development at the DuPont Co., I elected to accept the generous “early-retirement” package offered by the company in January 2016.)

I am also active in First State Woodturners, the Delaware Chapter of the AAW (American Association of Woodturners),  where I’m currently serving my third term as Program Director and Website/Social Media Wizard.

Several pieces are now available for purchase in my Etsy Shop, and I have many more in the pipeline.
