Wood Sculptures by Ted
Ted began his woodworking journey over 30 years ago.
He states, “From my point of view, I think creativity is a gift and reflection in a humans’ nature. I’m fascinated and inspired by the incredible complexity of wood as well as the way it feels and smells.”
He applies many techniques before a new piece is created. To roughly shape the wood, he uses a chainsaw to balance the weight before using traditional turning tools. He states, “I love working with hand tools, I am obsessed with balance and precision. I like to see organic simplicity and natural edges. Carving, sculpting, and inlays of other elements such as crude stone, fossils, metal, copper, mother of pearl, all make my pieces very unique.”
