Having once been a living thing, with wood that life is a residual thing. For when it passes it leaves behind the very essence of its life. It is there beneath it’s surface it the artfull semblance of it so called “grain”. It is There to be revealed as a story. The deeper the grain is exposed the richer of its life history it releases. It is a buried Treasure to behold and worth any effort to exploit to their great reward.
This is, and always has been the source inspiration brhind my work as I seek to bring that essence of life forth and let it breathe again.
