Overview

This idea-packed compendium presents the work of todays top wood artists in over 500 photos. More than 130 artists from nine countries are showcased, including furniture makers, turners, and sculptors who borrow ideas and techniques from one another to create their art. Their disciplines have blurred as furniture makers use sculpture and turnings in their work, as turners make furniture and sculpture, and as sculptors throw purism to the winds and use anything and everything to further their expressive ideas. Woodworkers in every discipline will marvel at the creativity, artisanship, and variety shown here. Teachers of art history, creative art, craft, industrial design, and woodwork will discover new material for teaching about wood as a medium. Curators, collectors, interior designers, and all who appreciates wood will find a full platter of ideas that will take a long time to digest.
