"I love the traces of other peoples lives and thoughts that become a patina on the stuff I use. Especially when I see things that little kids did in books 50 or 100 years ago. They were bored and, I think, more creative because of it."
"The work guides the work and the material choices. I am a disciple of "the unseen hand". I am all about working in a way that takes as much of the control away from my conscious mind as possible. It (the work) has a life of it's own, I just try to stay out of the way as much as possible. The "dreaming mind" is much more powerful than the "thinking mind".
