Layne has been a woodworker for over 20 years. He was introduced to this craft by his father, a very talented woodcarver. Layne has taught himself new techniques and methods to develop his own style over the years. Woodturning and custom woodworking are his specialties. His works frequently feature unique and rare woods which add color, shape, and complexity to each one-of-a-kind piece. While he enjoys incorporating the natural beauty of his materials into many of his bowls, his designs frequently feature geometric shapes and patterns that are diligently planned. His entries in the Durham Fair for bowls, cutting boards, and furniture have won him many distinguished awards.
Layne’s woodworks is currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
