The Art > A Birch Pot Hollow Form, Tom Borener
Birch Pot, wood turned sculpture, 5.5 x 4.5.
For more than 30 years Tom has worked in various art media, but when he discovered woodturning he was hooked. Since he got his first small lathe, it has been an almost daily ritual for Tom to spend some time turning. A few minutes turns into hours under the hypnotic charm of the spinning wood, as the rough blank becomes a finished piece. He strives to find the ideal balance between the nature of the wood and the best form to display it. Most of the wood Tom uses is from the Pacific Northwest, and is usually salvaged from trees that have had to be removed. The segmented forms occasionally contain some exotic woods, and care is taken to use sustainable wood from reliable sources. Tom's work is shown extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest.
