By Kevin Wallace, Terry Martin

MEET THIRTY-ONE CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF A CLASSIC CRAFT.

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, 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 Woodtruning 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.
