Welcome to Creekview Woodshop, located in beautiful Bourbon County, Kentucky. My turned wooden bowls, wood trays, lidded vessels, and other handcrafted wood pieces combine my love of trees and my love of shapes, especially interesting shapes viewed in profile. I like to think of my work as functional art, one-of-a-kind pieces designed to be both beautiful and useful.

Since I was a child, I have been interested in the natural world. As an adult, I went on to become a historical archaeologist, fascinated with the material cultural of the past. Through woodturning, I am able to merge these two passions.

I am drawn to combining woods with interesting knots, grain, spalting, worm holes, and other “imperfections” with more structured shapes. Some of these shapes hearken to historic refined ceramic tablewares as well as other more abstract ideas of the mid-twentieth century, such as the flying saucer.

I want those who view my turned wooden bowls, wood trays, and other vessels to be reminded that these items once were parts of beautiful, living trees. While the shapes vary, I hope one can sense my commitment to respecting their presence in the pieces I make.

Michlers Christmas Market

Michler’s Christmas Market

December 7-8 | Lexington, KY
We are thrilled to be invited to return to the very charming and festive Michler’s Christmas Market. There’s no more idyllic setting for a holiday market than the beautiful Michler’s greenhouse and Native Café, often described as an urban oasis. With a wide selection of local artists, the Michler’s Christmas Market is a great place to find one-of-a-kind gifts for the holiday season. Wreath makers are on site handcrafting wreaths throughout the weekend while Michler’s florists decorate boxwood trees. And be sure to take a break to enjoy the fresh-baked pastries and hot mulled wine beside the fire while listening to the sounds of cello music. We couldn’t love this event more!

We will post additional events as we receive confirmation of our invitation to participate. For this reason, please check back often or sign up for our email list by clicking the button below to receive notifications!
