I have been studying Led Zeppelin a bit, and I think they are the greatest Rock & Roll band; sorry Steven T. The song Stairway to Heaven was intended to be an epic song, and in a way so was this table. I wanted the visual experience to build as the viewer interacts with the table. We started with a composition of hearts, stars, color coated branches, and then filled the voids with random pieces of branches mixed with wood flour filled resin. After the piece was cut flat, the edges of the voids were coated with a thin blue filler, and then filled with black resin. We used over 5 gallons of resin on this piece. The experience builds from simply recognizing it as a coffee table to seeing objects, colors, and shapes. I hope everyone can appreciate the amount of prior experience I have acquired in order to make the mental leaps to bring this table to fruition. The base was another challenge, being more mechanical than romantic, though I think it compliments the table well. This is our Version of an epic Twig and Resin coffee table here at Barre Pinske Studio.

Artist Statement

Having talent is like owning a huge warehouse filled with very cool things. To get things out of the warehouse an artist needs time, inspiration and patrons. Affording the light bill in the warehouse not to mention the heat is a very important thing! When collectors buy, it creates an opportunity for the artist to enter the building and look around for the next wonderful piece to bring out for the world to see.

Ideas and patronage are equally important as talent. Whether it's something simple as an exercise or an opportunity to push creative limits all commissioned work is very important. Collectors have lead me to creative places I would not have gone alone. That experience is a big part of what I love about creativity and quality relationships. If you have a creative project you would like us to consider please e-mail me.

As a young man I was told by many people I had a gift. When I needed to make a career choice I decided if I did not pursue an art career and share my gift it would be like a present left wrapped and unopened. That was thirty years ago. As a maturing artist I look forward to more success and working with more of the interesting types of people who have passed my way. We have one shot at life having a goal of creating significant work with respect to art and meeting cool people make my life a truly wonderful experience. Thanks to all of you who have given me the opportunity to keep creating. I'm very excited to see my works coming up on the secondary market. I would love to become collectable It's every artist's dream.




Although I started my career as a wood sculptor I work in many mediums. Images of selected artworks are shown in categories by clicking the button bars on either side of top of this page. To see the most images of my art work click the photo archive button on the top left. I have over 100 photos of my work in the archive.



This chair is made from branches and resin. The chair took 300 hours to create. The chair has a plywood core for structure which I glued ridged foam to and sculpted it to shape. The foam was covered with a resin and wood dust mix. The branches were attached one by one to the shell and flooded with filled and pigmented resin. Click on the Chairs Button Bar to the right then on the twig chair to see pictures of the Twig Chair in process it is really cool.

This is a funny picture of me with a sculpted foam eagle head. The foam core was coated with filled resin and fiberglass. The foam is carved with a wire brush on a die grinder and sanding tools. The static cling of the foam is a pain but it carves easy and will not rot like wood. This sculpture was a commission for Steven Tyler. The eagle head is off of the deck on his home recording studio.


Here I am with Steven Tyler in my New Bedford Gallery in 2002. Steven and his then wife Teresa came down to see the 23' slide I was making as an alternative way to get from the main house to the pool house. I made the Paper Love seat we are sitting on in 1998.
