is a self-taught woodworker with an eye for design and symmetry.
He works with local, domestic and exotic woods, and likes to incorporate
materials such as gold leaf, metals, mother of pearl and vegetable
ivory into his unusual, one-of-a-kind pieces. Many of his designs
utilize timber seldom seen in woodwork such as sumac, hawthorn,
An avid bushman, Eugene enjoys the hunt for and
harvest of his wood as much as the creative process, and is often
heard to lament, “So many bush trails, so little time.”
