I turn wood of historical properties...... currently featuring bowls and vessels made
I am busy turning and carving wood harvested from Chinsegut Hill Manor, red gum, long leaf pine and camphor. Each wood is wildly different in character, each with a story to tell. The historical significance of the people who lived at Chinsegut Hill in the early 1900s is quite amazing. I work with a great amount of reverence turning this wood and hope that each vessel will spark and interest in learning more about Chinsegut Hill Manor, Raymond and Margaret Robins, Elizabeth Robins and Lisa von Borowsky. Throughout this web site there are links providing you with more information about wood, history and the people who nurtured the trees that made this Chinsegut Wood.

Moon bowl in the finishing stages..... November 2016
A new series of bowls celebrating our celestial neighbors is underway. Unlike other work I have created these bowls will be hand painted with a gilding wax and finished with a protective layer of polyurethane.
