Concurrently with my four year intensive program in TCM (traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture) I began woodworking, informally apprecnticing at a local woodshop. In 2012 I made [my first table], a product I couldn't find anywhere else, that for me spoke to the things I felt have been lost in consumer retail - a sense of craftsmanship, utility, minimalism, and aesthetic that matched my own.
Whenever possible I make use of unprocessed and reclaimed materials, in part because their age offers them a unique patina, but also to show the value of materials otherwise thought undesireable. My aesthetic is constantly developing, and slowly out of the hours I spend in this type of work, I see that my point of view is steadily emerging.
