Leon's sculpting arises from his need to create. He is drawn to the organic shapes and textures of wood, embracing their 'imperfections' and working in sympathy with the raw material to create a collaborative artefact that provides the owner with a functional celebration of natural wood. His sculptures are created with a range of saws, chisels and abrasive tools - and all finished with hours of hand sanding and natural oils to create a tactile finish.
