While walking along the beach at Cape Hatteras and collecting shells, I was inspired by the spiral shapes of the broken whelk shells.

A spalted maple log seemed the perfect material to carve this graceful spiral form.

I started with a walnut log. Unfortunately, it had a check down the middle of it.  Now what?  I began direct carving with the chainsaw and opening the crack even more.  An arch shape, like a torso, began to appear.

This is the first in a series of the Blue Bird story.   Where did the ephemeral bird come from, what is it's final destination?

Walnut wood has a beautiful warm color. This sculpture was carved from a single piece of wood. A strip of bronze was inserted into the wood.

The sculpture can be seen as a single figure, or as two figures facing each other.

The second in a series of a wrapped figure.

Again the dichotomy, is it one figure or two?

Many different elements come together to make up a single figure.

Here each part has been turned on a lathe.  The rosewood at the top is hand carved and gold leaf applied.

Carved from walnut wood, this is a variation on the trefoil knot design.  Gold leaf was applied to focus the energy at the center.

Like in a dream, a torso form floats above a stone mountain.

Birds and fish dance above the waves.
