Christian Burchard is primarily a sculptor, but he is also an experienced house builder and furniture designer. He enjoys direct contact with wood and uses a variety of tools to create different textures. Burchard believes in taking risks with his material, seeing the lathe as just "the first step on a journey," and will use green, unstable wood to turn forms that warp and twist as they dry.
