How I Work
Bruce’s creations are carved – a rigorous and time consuming process. They all start with a log and a chain saw. After roughing out with chain saws the creations are refined with grinders, sanders and fine tool hand work. Most pieces are brought to a high polish to enhance the grain. Texture and color are sometimes added as new elements for dramatic visual and tactile experiences.
