Figures in Contemplation







Many of my works are figurative, and yet I perceive them as vessels. People are containers of life, of love, of one another. Whilst vessels are seen as containers of things, these, are, more importantly harbingers of emotions, of spirit, of life itself.

These figures are hand-carved from Eucalyptus Regnans, using a drawknife and shavehorse.  The heads are of paper, which is made from garlic fiber.  The vestments are hand-woven on a loom using a linen warp and wefts from a variety of plant fibers, gum leaves and twigs, and grasses.

Prices vary from $240 to $490

    Your friend from Vancouver, Margaret Drummond, just sent me the link to your website and I want you to know you have a new fan! I feel great kinship with your work and with the way you write about it. It’s exciting to discover someone new to follow and learn about, especially across the world.
    Thank you.
