Gary Field uses Australian and exotic fine timbers including Red Cedar, Huon Pine and Rose Mahogany, and carves individually designed functional forms and sculpture. The flowing, organic, convoluting shapes in his work are inspired by nature and are incorporated in jewellery boxes, bowls and sculpture.
Objects collected from the bushland and beaches of Eastern Australia are a source of creative ideas. He also finds inspiration for his work in many aspects of this country’s natural features.
The seed pods, leaves, feathers, stones, bones and shells gathered serve to keep the images fresh in his mind when he returns to the workshop to create original and unusual jewellery boxes, bowls, furniture and sculpture.
He is environmentally conscious and has salvaged much of the raw materials himself and believes that every piece of a once living tree should be used.
He especially enjoys creating boxes made from reclaimed and recycled timbers that incorporate eye catching features. His boxes can be treasured as a special keepsake or used to hold a precious item.
