Zen philosophy emphasizes reaching a state of mind where only you and the task at hand reside in your awareness. This is the state of mind that I try to reach while turning wood or fabricating parts for sculptures. In keeping with the Zen traditions of simplicity, focus, and calm abiding, my work is aimed at trying to achieve those goals in every turned and carved piece.
