Based in the Blue Mountains, Gander has been handcrafting organic woodshapes for the past decade. His process starts by gathering unique remnants of fallen trees from southern Ontario. The transformation from tree to reclaimed pieces of functional art is inspired by exposing the natural textures and colours of the wood. Originally, excited by the physical process of working wood, Gander has combined his chainsaw and power tool skills with the inherent beauty of wood to create a perfect marriage of his passions.
Gander divides his time between carving, working in the commercial painting industry and paddling the waterways of Ontario. His work has been shown in galleries and group exhibitions throughout Ontario.
