The lathe used to be a utilitarian tool only, but in the hands of today's artists woodturning has undergone a beautiful transformation. This stunning international collection showcases the work of 40 pioneering wood turners who have expanded the possibilities of the medium; including a British artist from Burgess Hill. Their pieces range from classic to humorous to sculptural to amazing. Curator Jim Christiansen introduces each master's multi-page gallery with an insightful overview and the creators themselves offer their lyrical thoughts on wood, nature and art. Each volume in the "Masters" series is dedicated to an established art form and showcases the work of its celebrated artists. With a focus on craftsmanship and (global) diversity, these books will inspire beginners, professionals, collectors and enthusiasts alike.
