Materials

Many of the materials I use are either salvaged or recycled and obtained from my local environment.

Red Gum tree stump salvaged after the flooding of a local creek.

This Red Gum was cut down as it was causing structural damage to a neighbouring house. It has provided me with vast amounts of material to work with.

Native Cherry salvaged after storms was sealed to prevent cracking, however: some cracks did appear and were incorporated into the design of these bowls.

When new neighbours moved in next door, they no longer wanted this Pin Oak in the backyard - it was too good to waste.

Jarrah Burl is too precious and beautiful to use recklessly, so I prefer to use it as a feature material. 

A furniture maker's off cuts of figured Myrtle combine perfectly with Queensland Walnut salvaged from a friend's kitchen cupboard doors.

Transportation pallets can contain wood treasures also. 

Even low grade timber can be used creatively after a pallet has completed its life-cycle.

Just because it is badly cracked it doesn't mean it cant be used.

Fence post burn very well - not necessarily as fire wood and roofing slate can also have a second life.
