I am interested in the transformation and contrasts discovered through woodturning.The process of converting a featureless block of wood into a
graceful, symmetrical form is always fascinating and full of surprises.

While working at the lathe, all the details and color of the object are integrated into a spinning blur that reveals only its outline. At rest,
the same object can disclose complex details and dramatic coloring while possessing an entirely different sense of motion. The form was created by combining plywood layers cut on my home-built ornamental turning lathe using tool motions based on those of a traditional rose engine. The layers were then assembled into a cubic form and painted (multiple times) with metallized acrylic paints. Chemical agents are added while the final paint coat is still wet to create the patina finish.
