It all began for Tim within the suburbs of Toronto. Living near a wooded ravine, I developed a fascination for trees and further developed this relationship by working and living in the forests of northern British Columbia and the jungles of Venezuela and Ghana. I began by turning spindles for our heritage house and then parleyed my skills into bowl making. Cruising the established streets of Vancouver has afforded me with a supply of beautiful hardwoods. This wood has adorned the city streets for decades and has either fallen prey to the elements or removed by the city as a hazard. I salvage as much as possible to turn it into my fine bowls and vessels.
