and ecological work, which includes public commissions, is concerned with
the energies and cyclic patterns of nature. Large-scale carved and
constructed pieces using ancient tools - axes adzes and gouges and green woodworking techniques working with oak, elm, sweet chestnut
pieces are often concerned with evoking and depicting the ancient and
archetypal energies of landscape, trees, water and stone and seeing them
as infused with energy and spirit which connects them deeply to human
consciousness and vice versa.
There is a concern with those moments of fusion between human energies
and the impersonal processes of the natural world. Movements in the
human psyche parallel these processes and transformations, which
constantly recreate the world around us.
