Simon Kaplan is a professional woodcarver and wood turner with more than 30 years of experience from tribal and folk art world to works with well-known antique reproduction companies and period furniture shops. I take refuge in simple but unique items inspired by poetry and architecture, ancient, aboriginal and folk art from around the world. I treat these influences as a living tradition and infuse them with modern meaning and functionality.
