Stefan is primarily a self-taught woodworker who gained majority of his knowledge through the trial and 'terror' method. He prefers experimentation over formal training as any mishap becomes a creative opportunity: opportunity to fix or opportunity to build upon the mishap and make it a focal point. His preference is using domestic and exotic hardwoods. All wood is used in its natural state and colour leaving wood combinations up to the imagination. Imperfections in the wood (knots or tears) are never discarded; instead sought after when he's purchasing wood. His latest experiments have been into resin casting that will enhance or focalize the wood imperfection as well as allow him to use new raw materials such as pine cones or seed pods.
