I don’t use power tools because they don’t give me any information, but I can ‘feel’ with the hand tool. I can feel what type of wood it is, and how it feels underneath the plane. You can tell the grain growth, the crispness of it and the life within the wood.”STUDIO VISITS BY APPOINTMENT.LINK TO WEBSITE Iris Wakefield – I have been designing jewelry for 25 years.
