Made from a reclaimed Kumbuk log, the cross section slab reveals the heart of the tree. Growth rings expand
outward from the center, each year of the life of the tree adding to its beauty.
My grandfather left me his waterfront farm and
residence on the Eastern Shore of Virginia as a
vision for my future, a vision of rural life where
agriculture, aquaculture, and the work of the
artisan are interwoven.
Porcelain Hollow Zig Zag in Robin’s Egg Blue
Cerusing is a highly labor-intensive process with stunning results. First the piece is brushed by hand with a stiff wire
brush to ‘raise the grain.’ The piece is then painted white before the paint is meticulously scraped off with a razor
blade, leaving behind traces in the recessed areas and creating a dramatic finish.

Right: Porcelain Geode Stool in Graphite
When this log was pulled from the bottom of a river in the mountains of Sri Lanka, the local people cut a notch
around the log to catch the rope. This remote region is inaccessible by truck, so elephants were used to pull the log
from the river and drag it down the mountain.
Cooperation as demonstrated within the
natural world is my aspiration. Materials from
agriculture—salvaged wood, woven straw,
reeds, and porcelain—crafted by the skilled
hands of the artisan tell the story of
an interconnected world.
