Thank you for visiting my gallery. Click on any image for a full size photo of the piece.

This is a good place to remind present owners of my work of the care and handling of their pieces. All colouring is done with the most colour fast dyes and paints available. In spite of that fact it is imperative that they not be displayed in direct sunlight since ultraviolet rays will eventually deplete the colours. Sunlight also darkens any wood (natural oxidation) which reduces the vibrant nature of the grain in the highly figured wood that I use.  None of my work is meant to hold water or food since neither the forms themselves nor their finishes are waterproof. Never wash these pieces. Instead, the very occasional light application of high quality furniture polish (on semi gloss and gloss pieces only) and simply wiping with a dry micro-fiber cloth to remove dust and hand prints on any pieces is recommended.

The sole function of my work is to please the eye and evoke emotion. The only thing they are meant to hold is your attention.  I make these pieces with the intent that they will become heirlooms and with careful handling they will one day be that.


Creating “Oh! Scarlet!”

    But then I would have to build more shelves and you would have to dust them 🙂

  3. Hope Vandale says:

    Absolutely amazing! Love your detail to design….
    Your artwork speaks to your talent, Ed.

      Thank you, Hope. My pieces have no practical purpose other than to please the eye. I always feel very satisfied when someone enjoys them.

    Hey! Fantastic work!!!!! What I think is most interesting are the different styles you seem to have mastered! Varied pieces but all really well done Ed!

      Thanks, Nelson. “Mastered” might be a bit of a stretch. The fun is trying to actually get there. Making what comes to mind is certainly a pleasure. That what makes retiring retirement. 🙂

    Marion wants to know prices.

    Wow!! Great pieces, very inspiring…(read: you can expect to see me try to duplicate some of these 🙂 ). Love the colouring!!

      Thanks, Joel. They say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. I am looking forward to seeing your work.

    Inspiring, nothing less than inspiring.

    Your work is definitely pleasing to the eye-even more than the way wine is pleasing to the taste buds! Amazing work Ed. Very creative.

    Ed, you are to be complimented on the beautiful work you do. This blending of shapes and colours cannot be learned. Only the heart of a true artist could possibly attain what you have done. So very Wonderful to see …….

    Thank you for sharing ….

    My good friend Ernie Newman, a wood turner from in Australia emailed me with this comment , asking me to put it on my gallery page. Thank you for the kind comment, Ernie. That means a lot coming from you.

    Dear Ed
    I love the gallery of work, particularly 6 of 1 half a dozen of the other – and Remembrance – very powerful conceptual pieces. And the forms and decorative details are consistently strong. You should be proud.

    You can add this as comment to the response section if you want. I don’t know how to do that.

    All the best

  13. One word pretty much sums up your work…! I’m a new, learning woodturner and your work is extremely intimidating. lol. I could stare at these creations all day. Great work!

    Hello, My Dad recommended I might like this web site.
    They were totally right. This post, truly made my day. You can’t imagine just how much time I had spent looking for this type of info! Thank you, very much.

    • admin says:

      Hi Kristi,
      Glad you are enjoying the site and doubly glad that your dad recommended it. Which particular post were you referring to? Perhaps I can steer you toward more information on the particular subject.

    Hi Ed,
    I was privileged to receive your wonderful wood platter as a raffle prize at the Sasquatch Motorcycle Show & Shine. Unless I missed my guess, it’s one you had in you show. It’s slightly rectangular and reddish with blackened edges. My wife loves it as it goes so well with our decor.
    In viewing your website came to the conclusion that if anybody could do anything with the old pear tree root ball I have, it would be you.
    It’s been drying for about seven years and it’s about 16″in diameter and maybe 22″ long(tall) .
    If you would like it, (free) We’re in North Delta, and you can pick it up anytime.
    Maybe you can give it a second chance at a “life”? E-mail me for a photo if you like.
    Just an offer based in gratitude for your generosity and respect for your talent.
    Kind Regards,

  16. Hi Ed,
    Ross Paterson provided me with your web site address so that I could see what kind of work you do. It’s really beautiful. I can see from yours and Michael’s work that we will have a beautiful show. I haven’t looked at Ross’s nor Murray’s yet.

    Best wishes. Kristin
