The lathe used to be a utilitarian tool only, but in the hands of today's artists woodturning has undergone a beautiful transformation. This stunning international collection showcases the work of 40 pioneering woodturners who have expanded the possibilities of the medium. Their pieces range from classic to humorous to sculptural to amazing. Curator Jim Christiansen introduces each master's multi-page gallery with an insightful overview, and the creators themselves offer their lyrical thoughts on wood, nature, and art.


The artists include :

Bill Luce (calabash bowl forms)

Michael Hosaluk (surface color and texture)

Michelle Holzapfel (complex carved elements)

Gerrit Van Ness (narrative sculpture)

Cindy Drozda (lidded vessels)

Hans Weissflog (multiple-axis turning techniques)
