Kurt says, “Woodworking is in my bones. For thirty years, I’ve been making things, often as gifts. My aesthetic sense developed out of time I spent in Japan as a child. When the drawing or design I create begins to take on life in three dimensions, I always thank the wood I'm using for sharing part of its spirit with myself and with others. My approach to aesthetics is based on spare adornment and gentle tastes, classic rather than rustic. I have a fondness for the miniature, but I have explored aspects of joinery ranging in scale up to timber-frame (post and beam) construction.

“I strive for designs and methods that improve the product as it ages. My finishes acquire a patina through use, rather than starting out with a patina faked through staining or antiquing. This approach was at one time fundamental. I try in all aspects of my work and personal life to espouse and promote enduring durability and beauty. The woods I use are purchased from a New England supplier who makes every effort to stock only sustainably harvested lumber.
