The candlestick is finished with a food safe tung oil. It would be great for display on a table.

A peek into my workshop

When making and carving bowls I use chisels, bowl gouges and custom hand tools instead of cutters and CNC machines. This traditional method of wood processing used already by our ancestors is more time and energy consuming, but it eliminates all the stressful noise. Besides, the natural approach allows me to focus on the very structure of wood, its potential and my artistic expression.

Tung oil is thick high solid natural drying oil. It is obtained from seed kernels of the Chinese Tung tree. It repels water, it is food safe and leaves a velvety finish with honey shade.

about photo


I am a 41-year-old graphic designer and web developer with a great passion for woodworking. I love the pleasant, warm feel of wood and dedicate all my spare time to working with this noble material.

Each piece of wood deserves to show its best

I have always loved taking a piece of wood and turning it into something unique and useful at the same time. I love the feeling I get, when I see various artworks from the past. They have never ceased to fascinate me. The use of a traditional woodworking approach combined with the natural beauty of hardwood trees makes my thoughts come true.

I usually use only hand tools and traditional ways of wood processing, natural adhesives (bone glues), dyes and pigments (self-mixed milk paint) and also finishes (natural drying oils, beeswax, and hard resins such as copal and amber).
