Donna Zils Banfield | Naturally Flawed, 2019
Derry, New Hampshire
Cherry, pealized acrylic paint, lacquer
4 x 5.25 x 4 inches

Artist Statement: I had a cherry log that had been damaged by carpenter ants. This end-grain vessel was turned from one of the sections. I left an imperfection - a single insect tunnel in the vessel wall. Hence the name, "Naturally Flawed."

About the Artist:
Donna Zils Banfield has been creating works of 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.
Donna has been teaching and demonstrating since 2007, sharing her knowledge and techniques with woodturning clubs throughout New England and beyond. She has written articles for the Journal of the Guild of New Hampshire Woodworkers and the AAW’s Woodturning FUNdamentals. Donna has been a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen (LNHC) since 2010 and currently serves as a Juror in wood, evaluating and critiquing the work of applicants seeking admission to the League as a juried craftsperson.
Her work can be found in private collections in Australia, India, Taiwan and the U.S.
