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, these 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 Woodturning 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.

In this unique collection of artistic pieces that have redefined the limits of shaped wood, crafters and designers alike are treated to a wealth of knowledge from 31 leading artists who share their personal motivations, thought processes, and the studio techniques employed to bring out the breathtaking beauty of wood.

Contemporary artists such as Virginia Dodson, Binh Pho, Harvey Fein, Paul Fennell, and Marilyn Campbell are among those whose works are given studio-quality photographic treatment. Each featured piece encourages crafters to find new ways of connecting with their own creative channels and makes this book an important document of the modern craft.
