Our lives as humans have always been intricately intertwined with wood. Almost as far back in time as there are artifacts that inform us about our past, we find wood objects as part of our lives. Our forebearers made those: handles, needles, bowls, canoes, etc. Objects were sometimes purely decorative in nature and often even the most mundane of utilitarian objects were decorated. As craftsmen/artists, the wood nurtures us as we nurture it, it's almost symbiotic in that regard. I often choose to make shapes with an organic look/feel to partner with wood's inherent organic nature.
