BEAUTY BENEATH THE BARK

"I love the sensual pleasure in the smell and feeling of working with wood and the instant gratification of watching shavings fly while seeing the shape appear before me.  Turning bowls, lidded vessels and boxes appeals to my personal preference for functional art, but I also love the challenge and joy in making purely decorative pieces.  The variety and beauty of wood continually awe me and as a turner, I can use wood that would otherwise be wasted or become firewood. For the past fourteen years I have enjoyed collaborative work with my wife Lisa, using her flame worked glass to embellish my turnings and create unique art together."

TORCH-WORKED GLASS BEADS

"I love the sensual pleasure in the smell and feeling of working with wood and the instant gratification of watching shavings fly while seeing the shape appear before me.  Turning bowls, lidded vessels and boxes appeals to my personal preference for functional art, but I also love the challenge and joy in making purely decorative pieces.  The variety and beauty of wood continually awe me and as a turner, I can use wood that would otherwise be wasted or become firewood.  For the past fourteen years I have enjoyed collaborative work with my wife Lisa, using her flame worked glass to embellish my turnings and create unique art together.

 

"Making torch worked glass beads combines my childhood appreciation for glass miniatures with a lifelong love of marbling, sparkling inclusions, patterns, and color.  I find inspiration in textile design, nature, and art history for my flame-worked creations. The process of melting, shaping, and decorating glass fascinates me.  The torch flame transforms the glass from rock hard to clay malleable to honey soft.  Experimenting with new glass colors and techniques makes my heart sing each time I fire up the torch. For the past fourteen years I have enjoyed collaborative work with my husband, Chuck, using my flame worked glass to embellish his woodturnings and create unique art together."
