Jim Scott’s passion for wood began in Europe. He worked in Germany making flutes, while studying old recorders and baroque flutes in the museums until 1982. He later moved to Berkeley, raised a family, and started a career in computer engineering. He has recently come full circle to his creative past.
“What I make has flexibility, I can be experimental with colors and shapes. Wood is beautiful nothing compares to taking a few scraps of it and watching something emerge. I am enchanted by the smell of it, I can recognize 20 different kinds of wood by their scent alone.”
