About the artist: Award-winning woodturner Ben Bohlinger works exclusively in green (fresh, or undried) wood. Because his pieces are turned very thinly, the wood begins to dry and delicately distort almost immediately. For Bohlinger, this change in shape is vital to the finished piece: "The wood does what it does .... it works."
