"This form combines the age-old traditions of ornamental turning with the modern methods of three-dimensional printing. The form is assembled from many layers each including a classical ornamental pattern like ones commonly made using a rose engine. Each layer was cut on my home-built ornamental turning machine and assembled to make a form that shows the layered construction."

About the Artist:
Educated in engineering, Dewey Garrett took up the lathe in order to develop general woodworking skills for cabinetry and furniture. He found the process so stimulating and challenging that woodturning became a dedicated pursuit. Garrett's work is a continuing exploration of the structure of forms constrained by the symmetry and simplicity imparted by the mechanics of a lathe. His work is in numerous private and public collections, including Carnegie Museum of Art; Museum of Arts and Design, New York; The Detroit Institute of Arts; Long Beach Museum of Art, Long Beach, California
Mobile Museum of Art, Alabama; The White House, Washington, DC;
American Association of Woodturners Permanent Collection, St. Paul, Minnesota
