About the Artist:
John Beaver, a native of the California coast, has been inspired and influenced by the motion of waves in the pieces he creates. His turning began on an inherited lathe with some glued pieces of wood resulting in a small vase. Later with classes at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine he realized the potential of adding both visible and tangible dimension to the walls of a bowl.

From this, John’s career as a Hollywood cameraman and director was transformed to artist and woodturner. He uses local wood from his area, mainly sycamore, live oak and walnut with a very limited amount of exotics.

John’s goal is to bring “life to turning,” by capturing some of the elements of the ocean and more specifically – the wave -- to give the impression of a protruding wave and the notion of motion and rhythm. Everyone can make a bowl but his focus is to make a bowl which is more interesting, employing the use of multiple colors, woods, and textures to create his signature wave bowls.
