The theme reminded me of a line from chapter eleven of the Tao Te Ching: It is the empty space within that makes a bowl useful. Most of the bowls I carve are long and shallow, very open between the handles. By condensing the form and pushing the handles up and toward each other, the eye is drawn to the space between them, to the important emptiness within.

Dave Fisher works with traditional edge tools to shape wood, usually green wood from logs and branches, into bowls, spoons, vessels, and sculptural pieces. He continues to be inspired by the woodlands around his home in western Pennsylvania.

As believers in the importance of creative cross-pollination, the Professional Outreach Program invites a small number of highly talented and inspiring makers who are not woodturners to be part of our annual exhibition and auction. For those turners trying to figure out how this bowl was turned: Dave's beautiful bowl is hand-carved.
