John  has been a woodworker for over 40 years.  In his early career he designed and sold contemporary pieces of furniture, worked as a carpenter and enjoyed decorative carving.  He started as an elevator technician in the 80’s.

Now retired, John is back to his passion in woodworking.

He combines his background in woodworking and  love of nature to create unique wall hung functional mirrored sculptures using tree holes.
John is inspired by what he finds outside and brings the beauty of the natural world into homes.

When he is not watching his grandchildren, you will find him in his woodworking studio /Gallery in Connecticut.

PHILOSOPHY

Tree holes provide a great medium for creativity and also provide a habitat for wildlife.

Therefore, John  uses only the tree holes from downed trees.​

His work is part him  and part Mother Nature blended together to create a unique functional art form.
