Woodworker & Wood Turner
A long-time worker of wood, Meish shifted from cabinetry to lathe work — working in both vertical and horizontal dimensions. He also served as lead negotiator of land claims for both Indigenous peoples and for the Government of Ontario.
Using domestic woods gathered from backyards and the bush, Meish tries to maximize the visual impact of the grain, colour and structure unique to each piece of wood – much like a sculptor searching for the hidden form in each stone.
More photos of Meish’s work are in the Photo Gallery under Woodworking.
