Artist's Note

"I decided to turn a tube after reading an article about them in the April 2016 issue of "American Woodturner." Once finished, it looked a little plain, so I pierced, embellished, pyroed and painted autumn maple leaves on it. The title “United we Stand” came to me as l was piercing the leaves: as in life, without supporting one another they would be divided and fall."

About Michael Gibson

In his early years growing up in England, Michael worked on wooden sailing yachts along the banks of the River Crouch. He moved to the US in the eighties and began a career as a finish carpenter and later a home builder. Working with wood all of his life, Michael was always interested in woodturning and studied for many years to perfect his craft. What began as a hobby blossomed into a passion, and Michael is now an award winning artist who exhibits and teaches internationally.
