Warren Carpenter

Woodworking has always been a part of my life, but what else would you expect from a Carpenter? I was a homebuilder for 30 years and built furniture and sculpted in wood in my spare time. Since 1999, my passion has been turning wood. With a creative eye and an ever-expanding knowledge of wood, I am always watching for that special piece of a tree that can become a unique turning or piece of art. My goal is to expose the natural beauty of the wood in a pleasant shape that when finished will stimulate both the senses of sight and feel.

Material: Wood

“Woodworking has always been a part of my life, but what else would you expect from a Carpenter? While being a custom homebuilder for 25 years, I would build furniture and sculpt in wood in my spare time. In 1999 I discovered woodturning that allowed me to produce pieces faster and got my creativity flowing. With a creative eye and an ever-expanding knowledge of wood, I am always watching for those special trees or parts of trees that may someday become a unique piece of artwork. There are few things better than finding a burl and figuring out the best way to turn it into one or more pieces of artwork. Beyond creating artistic bowls, I enjoy experimenting with new shapes and forms to help me release the natural or not so natural beauty of a piece of wood. The final step in the creation process is the finish that will protect and enhance the wood without making a statement of its own. A finely finished piece shows all the beauty of  the wood, in a shape that is pleasant to both sight and feel.”
