Designing and building my own work, I receive inspiration from the beauty, grace and proportion of the craftsmanship in nature. The work made should reflect the soul of the maker. It’s “design soul” that is the key that brings everything together – without that the work is just another object. Does the piece you are making inspire? Does it stir the emotions? Does its strength instill confidence?
From the fitting of a mortice and tenon joint, to the assembly of a dovetailed case, or the hand carving of a special knob or pull, the craftmanship should be self evident. To touch, to feel, to enjoy the texture, emotion and fineness of each work is the goal. These are the qualities I am looking for when I build, and if they are present, then I have been successful in the making.
