Casey McCafferty’s creations seem to belong in both a gallery and a getaway cabin. His work exhibits traditional techniques mixed with a unique style of experimentation, reflecting natural surroundings and the boundaries that exist between craftsmanship, art and technique.

“All of my work starts from chunks of material and is hand-carved. I’m a firm believer in direct carving, I don’t like to make accurate sketches or diagrams for my sculptural practice. I usually think about stories I have read or the world around me and let it come out in wood,” McCafferty shared. “I rarely know what the finished form will look like till I am 75% through with the work. I like to have a range of functional and non-functional sculptures.”

After a lackluster career in banking, McCafferty didn’t want anyone else’s opinions controlling his woodworking. “Five years ago I decided if I was to be happy, I need to go into the shop every day like a child. I need freedom and I need to be able to express myself with the medium I choose,” he said. McCafferty’s now working full-time on his sculptural practice. “I think when someone is truly engaged in their work you see it. You can feel the soul in the work.”
