About Carl

Carl works in many media including wood (turned, 3D sculpture), glass (flameworked/lampworked, fused), clay (stoneware and porcelin pottery), and precious metal (jewelry).

Carl started turning wood in the mid 1980s. He is currently a member of the Grey-Bruce Woodturners Guild in Kincardine, Simcoe Woodturners Guild in Barrie, Thames Valley Woodturners Guild in London, American Association of Woodturners, Segmented Woodturners, and Ornamental Turning International. Through a combination of instructional training and self-taught (trial & error), Carl continues to develop and refine his technique.

Carl concentrates on domestic woods, including maple, cherry, birch, butternut, and walnut. He enjoys using exotics on occasion. He likes to incorporate surface embellishments, such as air-brushed, gilded, or woodburned accents, on a turned piece.

Carl shows his work and teaches a variety of classes at the Southampton Art Centre in Southampton and Stephen Hogbin's Intersections Wood Gallery & Studio in Owen Sound, and is a regular presenter at other guilds and public events.
