New Masters of Woodturning MEET THIRTY-ONE CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF A CLASSIC CRAFT. They are from different parts of the world but share a common passion: turning wood into sculptural forms of self-expression. In this groundbreaking book, thirty-one innovative artists-the New Masters of Woodturning-share their amazing turning techniques and the inspiration that fuels their distinctive designs. You'll see each artist at work-in their studios, homes, and at the lathe-and discover why their stunning work is considered to be preeminent in the respective fields of woodturning and modern art. A gallery of beautiful photographs displaying breathtaking vessels, bowls, platters, and more-many of which have never been published-accompanies each profile. New Masters of Woodtruning looks beyond the surface of the wood and into the vision and mind of the artist, providing insights that offer a captivating and important perspective of turn-of-the-century art and craft.
