I work with bamboo, glass, thread, and stones to create large and small scale bamboo sculptures for homes and public spaces. The impetus for my work comes partly from my ongoing relationship with bamboo as an art material and the landscape around me. I use both traditional tools and techniques as well as woodworking and more modern techniques to create the work. In the work I use a simple gesture repeatedly to create a complex form. Each simple gesture is like a word in a story.
