I am a traditional stone craftsman working in rural Davenport, Alabama, about 30 minutes south of Montgomery.
A self-taught sculptor, I make bowls and other functional objects alongside sculptural pieces and public sculptural commissions. I use a process that blends old world techniques and traditional tools with a modern eye to emphasize functionality while following an austere, minimalist aesthetic drawn from nature.
All of the bowls I make are free form, that is, they are not turned on a lathe. The end product is something more beautiful—almost imperceptibly imperfect with subtle undulations and asymmetry. They are minimalist sculptures each in their own right.
Although I use a broad range of stones including granite and slate, my primary interest is working with limestone and marble native to the state of Alabama.
