Below are some sculptures that students that have been in one or more of my classes have completed. (Return to Classes Page)

 

This bowl is the work of Bill Aber. Bill initially took my class to learn movement and created some beautiful fluid mounts for his turned vessels. He returned to class the following spring with two vessels he had turned, with the intent of putting some carving into them. We decided to make the vessels open reliefs, one with a trout left floating in the design and one with a bird in flight. This piece is the third in a series Bill is creating, which he calls "Fish Bowls". Bill turned this vessel out of Hack-berry after he took my class, and did an excellent job applying the principles of movement in his unique design.

I have another student Mike Krueger that has done a fantastic piece out of a large Aspen burl, he too started by turning a vessel and bringing it to class. The carving on it is not open relief, but deep fluting on both the outside and inside of the vessel, he is currently in the process of mounting it where it can be viewed from all sides.

Both of these men would readily agree that what they have learned in class has opened up for them a "whole new frontier of ideas in design".
