SECRET LIFE OF TREES
UNCOVERING HIDDEN STORIES WITHIN TREES
The way a space is furnished can tell you a lot about the people who live and work there. Thoughtfully created objects, made for a specific place and purpose, will draw people into the space as they reach out to touch and examine the pieces more closely. They ignite curiosity and imagination; they give meaning to a space.
I hope the objects I create make people feel a repertoire of positive emotions – perhaps the same quiet joy I feel when working with my hands – and reflect on nature’s gifts; I hope they are a reminder of the fragility of our environment and of the diminishing resources on earth; I hope it encourages us all to be more mindful of the things we use and throw – and ultimately, to do less of the latter by choosing to purchase and use furniture and objects that are thoughtfully and lovingly made, and that are made to last.
