Artist information: Donna Zils Banfield has been creating art in wood since she received her first lathe as a surprise Christmas gift from her husband in 2001. Donna’s skills on the lathe were self-taught, but honed through workshops taught by gifted and skilled artists and turners who shared their knowledge. Her carving techniques and designs evolved after studying under several internationally recognized fine art and craft masters. A juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen since 2010, she works in her studio in Derry NH, with wood primarily from trees that have succumbed to disease, storm damage or urban development. She takes what nature – both human and Mother – has nearly destroyed, and gives it a new one, a life less ordinary.

Jerry Sambrook: "Although I started woodturning some years ago, I didn’t get serious until 2009. My goal is not to focus on one single style, but to be a good overall woodturner. I have demonstrated for the AAW in San Jose 2012, Utah Symposium and Totally Turning in 2013, the Woodworkers Showcase in 2014, and the New England Woodturning Symposium in 2015. I particularly enjoy the collaborative process, and have done several pieces with other woodturners and artists."
