Well here are a few of the canes I have made. I am designing and creating as I go, letting the wood “talk” to me. I am taking a more sculptural approach to the handles but foremost they MUST be comfortable and practical to hold and use. I believe function should be in tuned with beauty to create the ultimate ”object de art”. I find it too impractical to make something pretty that is not usuable, especially in an item that is needed to be used.
Since I am relatively new to woodworking and I don’t have the traditional background of what is right or wrong, I am always thinking of different ways to combine and incorporate woods and other media so that their individual beauty flows together. I hope each piece talks to you as it does to me.
