November 12, 2008: This program continues an exploration of wood with artist Robin Corell who operates from his home studio in Atascadero. With an MFA in sculpture he now creates furniture with a keen interest in designing forms that are fully three dimensional and that make use of subtle curves. Making use of locally already felled trees, he mills his own wood.
November 5, 2008: This program is part one featuring two Atascadero woodworkers whose work is created from tree trunks that just might come from any yard. This week is a visit with Barry Lundgren a wood turner who specializes in lidded containers and asymmetrical bowls. A lover of nature, Barry's early artistic expressions were as a photographer. Although still a love, his passion now is the discovery of wood's hidden beauty via his skill with the lathe.
