Jerry is a long-time cottager on Bella Lake where he explores the shallows by canoe searching for driftwood to transform into sculptural art.
The beauty of the wood is often not apparent in the pieces as they exist in nature, covered as they are in sand, silt and algae. It is with cleaning and meticulous sanding that the hidden beauty in the grain, shape and texture is uncovered. Finishing with a natural oil brings out the drama in the grain and mounting on a base of Muskoka granite or quartz further enhances the impact.
Some of Jerry’s sculptures are representational, while others are free-form and impressionistic, inviting the viewer’s imagination.
