Boxes have always been a wonderful palette for displaying the timeless, trendless elegance of wood. To achieve that, I have introduced non-geometric, organic elements in a disciplined manner to create personal galleries for prized possessions.
Contour, color, grain, carvings and burning are wedded to yield each piece’s personality while giving order and dignity to the treasures kept within. The wood is vigorously polished before and after applying finishes for a tactile human bond.
I use two finish systems depending on the wood characteristics and/or desired visual effect. After first polishing the wood, walnut oil and wax are applied to fine grained woods to enhance subtle detail and color. When a high depth gloss finish is desired, a 5-coat acrylic finish is applied and hand rubbed.
