Stick Hand

I make a lot of these. Finding a cluster of branches that will work for a piece like this is more rare than one may think. It is a totally reductive process. Some raw pieces have more branches to choose the fingers from. It is good when there is a choice of the branches I cut or keep. Sometimes just having five useable branches to work with is good enough.

My favorite life lesson from this kind of process is if I go too far it will be ruined!

Past: Tolerated the U.S. educational system as far as a Bachelors degree. Favorite sports were skateboarding, windsurfing and pole vaulting. Worked on many jobs and projects, giving me a wide variety of skills and experiences.

Present: People call me a renaissance man. I still enjoy variety and being productive. Probably why artwork is one of my lasting activities. Snowboarding and hiking are my favorite ways to recreate with my amazing wife and sons.
