I like to make functional art: All of my projects are made to be used. Every day since 2006, I drink tea from one of the first mugs I made. My projects include careful planning and execution to get exceptional items that will last for years to come. If you want something you don't see, just ask: I can make quotes and provide computer mockups of projects.

Think of everything on this site as examples: The actual options are endless.

I make my tankards from wood and food-safe finishes. They can hold any liquid that is safe to drink, hot or cold. I use a clear coating on the inside so the beauty of the wood is not hidden. I usually prefer natural wood colors and avoid dyes and stains. Just be sure not to use the dishwasher on them.
