Iroko, Yellow Heart, 5.625 x 5.5 x 5 inches Keith Gotschall

This piece is from a new series of works, that I call the "Inclusion Series"--these works are gestural in nature, and can be viewed as a maquette or models of large heroic scale sculptures. Singly or in groups, they evoke a landscape or city scape in which to interact; perhaps even stage props that support the human dramas of everyday life.

Keith grew up in the Midwest, got a reasonable education, and moved to Colorado in 1981. There he worked in various woodworking shops, working with skilled craftsmen to make custom furniture. Eventually he stepped out on his own, starting his own business in 1989. Focused on bespoke furniture, and designing his own work, he continued on this path until 1997 where he re-found the magic of the wood lathe. Within the year he turned his entire business into providing turned items for the wholesale and retail craft market.

Keith continues to focus on the making of turned work, but also spreads his talents to teaching, demonstrating and writing. He is known for his clear descriptions, and simple methods of work, defining a very traditional take on woodturning.

Keith's work has won numerous awards and can be found in important collections and publications.

His work is often functional, occasionally whimsical, but always well crafted. His other interests; metal working, foundry patterns, stone sculpture, clockmaking and being in the outdoors can be seen as influences in his work.

Keith lives in Salida Colorado, at the base of the Continental Divide. Keith Gotschall has had a working life that spans many vocations. Designing and building furniture has been a primary passion of his career. Wood turning has also provided for not only his livelihood but also a creative outlet. Sculpture, in stone, wood and metal has been where his most expressive work has found an outlet. With myriad shows, exhibitions and museum displays, his work has found a wide audience. His work continues to explore and evolve into an amalgam of his influences and interests.
