A talented carpenter and sculptor, Kenneth uses his artistic background to create unique and functional works of art out of wood and stone. From benches to swings to water fountains, Ken has been creating all kinds of wonderful pieces for the past 25 years. His methods are far less traditional and do not conform to only one style of art or carpentry. Kenneth uses the natural curvature of the wood to inspire his pieces. All of his wood projects contain only recycled wood from fallen trees or barns. Many of his works are not limited to wood but have on numerous occasions included stone and even iron.
